'The Painter' began as a real-time investigation and visual response to the movements and sounds of an artist creating a painting live in the gallery. After one session with the artist, Briony then worked back into the composition on her own. The key at the top and bottom of the piece show the order in which different colours and marks were added.
The evolution of the painting has been documented as it has evolved from this starting point. See visual archive here.
