Painting Technique

In place of conventional brushes, Shackleton uses squeeze bottles and gravity to create her paintings. Liquid paint is dripped, poured and layered. The canvas is rotated to steer the drip and fall of the paint. Videos featuring her innovative technique have reached over 15 million people worldwide.

What people are saying

I received my beautiful painting today!! It came through perfectly. All that bubble wrap did its job... it's even more beautiful in person than we anticipated. Thank you!!"

B.B. (Art Collector)

I have worked closely with many Artists, and in many capacities. Amy Shackleton is the most trustworthy, responsible, reliable, creative, ethical, skilled, kind, and intelligent of people."

Jeremy Desjardine (Educator, Artist)

Although Shackleton's paintings are intended to be designs for quotidian urban agriculture of the future, many paintings could also be perceived as jarringly atrophic."

Matthew Ryan Smith (Curator)

Amy’s painting style was unique and certainly very entertaining for the crowds that watched her create the marvellous paintings right there, live on the show floor."

Doug Parsons, Home Hardware (Client)

Notably absent in all Shackleton’s paintings are people, traffic and other living presences. Absence leaves space for projection; space, scale and time are ambiguous, incongruencies go unnoticed."

Todd Tremeer (Curator, Artist, Educator)
