morphing 

Leave a comment

Some paintings morph for quite a while, this one is no exception, been working on it for the last several months, you could say it’s a paintamentary, it embodies life experience, romance, heart break, joy, sorrow, travel, nature, city, and human nature. It was painted in public settings and also in my studio. There is a social cultural anthropologist side to me, for as long as I can remember, observing people in this theatre we call life and documenting the experience. There is also a monk side to me, hours spent in relative silence devout to painting, thinking, concentrating, and being in each moment as it unfolds, mark by mark, layer by layer. It will be interesting to see this one through, I am making no predictions, just continue to build the layers, and do the work until it’s on the brink of exhausted. That might end up being the title, although that’s a little too predictable. 

hälts minimotion 

‘hälts presents SLO’ ⚡️a new minimotion paintamentary rough cut special edition with soundscape ‘I I’ and featuring some Sky timelapse from the summer months, my painting WIP ‘SLO’ (working title) morphing before your very eyes, in flux, closing with some water rippling in slomo, and the beat goes on…(part 1) 


And a moment of silence for Tom Petty and Gord Downing, we lost some good ones, there songs will carry on.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
