From Flax to Artist’s Canvas

Instinctively I’m drawn to paint on aluminium panels due to my background of training and working in auto body shops restoring and re-spraying cars. However, I do get excited when I first hold a newly stretched artist canvas in my hands. The taught, perfectly flat, pristine white surface calls me, and like a little kid I just can’t resist lightly flicking it with my fingers to hear that satisfying sound resonate like a soft drum beat. This short yet wonderful video gives a great insight to the laborious and meticulous process of producing the fine art canvas. In doing so it also pays homage to the unsung heroes that contribute to all the masterpieces created throughout history.
