Filmed directly from above and with only the 12 artists’ working hands captured in the shot, Painters Palette traces the highly physical, intuitive and distinctive cadences of artistic thought in action, as they dab, mix and coax the pigments to their will. The painters work in a variety of medi, ranging from oil to acrylic, watercolour and enamel, and were drawn widely from Rob and Nick Carter’s circle of friends, including Jonathan Yeo and rising stars Flora Yukhnovich and Caroline Walker. As a counterpoint to the Dark Factory Portraits, Painters Palette is a joyful and compelling celebration of the dexterity of the human hand and the virtuosity of the brain.
