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.

The image above, from Terminator (the best I’ve seen so far) was shared on Twitter last year. Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.
