Amy Shackleton has developed a unique process, earning the title “gravity artist.” She applies paint with squeeze bottles and rotates the canvas to guide each drip as it falls down the stretched surface. Her calculated, yet spontaneous process mimics the duality of her urban/natural landscapes. Shackleton’s paintings are inspired by her global travels and photographs. She fuses urban and natural locales to illustrate her vision of the future—a future where cities welcome the natural world. Shackleton has exhibited paintings in Canada, USA and the UK. Her works adorn dozens of private and corporate collections across North America. A time-lapse video of her process has reached over 1,100,000 people, sparking international television interviews, magazine articles and extensive online coverage. Shackleton holds a BFA Honours Degree from York University.
