Shackleton drips, pours and layers liquid paint to depict our uncertain future – be it utopian or apocalyptic.
Shackleton's innovative painting technique has captured the imagination of millions online. She applies paint with squeezes bottles and manipulates the falling drips with water spritzers and, most often, by rotating the canvas. Natural forms emerge from this organic paint application that mimics how environments are actually created, through forces such as gravity and rain erosion. In contrast, urban imagery is built up with architectural precision. Paint is dripped in straight lines that are meticulously pre-planned using tools such as a ruler and level.
