Coincidential and Calculated Art

I found that Amy Schakleton's artwork complements our class discussion on beautiful artwork and how the individual need not have an exact concept in mind to create a stunning work of art. With Schakleton paints without a paintbrush and uses a "calculated yet spontaneous technique," to drip paint down her canvases. Her artwork reminds me of the tall painting posted earlier on the blog, and how both works of art rely on skill, gravity, and coincidence, which I find particularly admirable and daring. I think her artwork is a testimony to how the form of the artwork is not constrained to arbitrary rules, but acts as if it were a result of nature.
