The Brushless Paintings of Amy Shackleton

Believe it or not, Toronto-based artist Amy Shackleton uses no paintbrushes to create her landscape paintings. She uses squeezy bottles to apply different colours of paint to her canvas, and harnesses the power of gravity to control the flow of the paint. She rotates the canvas as she pours the paints and also works on the floor, to pool the thicker enamel paint and shape it into the forms that she requires.

Have a look at some of her brushless paintings and a time-lapse video of her process after the jump.

This video is sped up to 800 times the normal speed and crams a 33-hour painting session into two and a half short minutes.

See more of Shackleton’s artwork on her website.
