DESCRIPTION

A film portrait of Scottish painter Gwen Hardie in her studio in Brooklyn, NY. “The paintings attempt to witness life as it is passing, neutral, simply alive.

PRESS

"Had filmmaker Charlotte Lagarde not taken her camera into Fife-born artist Gwen Hardie’s Brooklyn studio last year, I would not have been able to see for myself the fascinating process of body to mind to canvas to paint to completion which turns her work into jewel-like ruminations on mankind’s place on a swiftly turning planet."
