Description

Now 79, painter (and one man band musician) Llyn Foulkes belongs to the constellation of West Coast artists in the 1950s and ’60s widely associated with Pop. That’s only part of a career featuring political junk assemblage, geological portraiture and a sideline in music with a homemade Seussian contraption of horns and drums. Mr. Foulkes comes across as a mostly lovable, cranky and brilliant outsider.    We witness him in action as he works vigorously on two paintings  – both extended works in process. It’s a glimpse of a creative process matched by cutaways and clips of Mr. Foulkes’s songs, and his  cathartic stream of musings and regrets. Part Clint Eastwood, part political anarchist, this intimate portrait of Llyn Foulkes follows his obsessive craft and process for eight years.
