Amy Lockhart - Shrivelled Creatures and Cut Paper Animations
Amy Lockhart's is a Canadian artist and filmmaker. Her art-brut drawings and paintings are playful, reminiscent of Lee Godie, squishing figures into awkward tube shapes and detailing the fleshy fold-overs. Her most recent animation Walk for Walk continues this grotesquerie into a stream-of-conscious parade of licking, skipping, and merry-making.
"This 16mm film was created using over 1,000 hand painted cut-outs and paper puppets with paper backgrounds. I recorded the sounds in an isolation box I built in my living room, out of cardboard, insulation and drywall." The soundtrack is also an astonishing collage of unexpected Foley sound and warbly electronics. You can view more animations, including her collaborations with Marc Bell, on her blog.
