Richard Jackson

Paintings by Richard Jackson. I love the idea of using a canvas as a brush! Jackson was just up here in Vancouver installing work at Bob Rennie’s gallery and it involved shooting 60,000 paint-dipped bullets from a pellet gun at a canvas. Awesome.

    I walked by the gallery when this was happening, i did a double take and was taken aback. Looked so rad, I was wondering who was up to something.

    Great job!
