As a continuation of Shaun’s ‘ The Prehistoric School of Barbaric Painting’ task we chose to make a film of us creating a 4×4 metre painting. The intention was to connect with the subconscious and allow the painting to develop in an intuitive way, attempting to disregard the intellectual decision making process. We filmed the process over one day and invited other people to respond to the painting by way of costume and interaction. Thanks to Anna Smith, Nick Wild and Annette Parnell for getting involved.
