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

My favourite Canadian artist for over 10 years. Her talent, creativity, sensibility, mix of ideology with harsh realism, and most of all, her deep care for our natural environment is all captured in each of her masterpieces. The power of her message is clearly and holistically captured."

Olivia Goudou (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)

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)

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)
