I’ve had a few of Ian Davenport‘s Puddle Paintings hiding in an inspiration folder on my desktop since 2011. Fortunately, I was able to rediscover his amazing polychromatic work after reading about his most recent installation, where he collaborated with Swatch for the Venice Biennale. Wide Acres of Time is made up of more than 1,000 vertical lines of glossy and vibrant acrylic paint, all along a 46 foot wide aluminum panel. For over 20 years, the British artist has been making paintings by pouring paint onto a tilted surface, allowing the vertical lines to cascade down into rich puddles of color. The precision in the creation of hues and choice of sequence can be under-appreciated until you’re able to actually see his process in motion. Check out the video below for a mesmerizing peek into Ian Davenport’s brilliant method.
