Questions for Mr Reynolds

Television (Full Length) – 2007 Documentary Arts/Culture

Start video player

The work of artist John Reynolds takes in painting, photography, clothing, tattooing and landscaping. Shirley Horrocks frames this Artsville documentary as a series of questions. The answers reflect Reynold's exuberant personality, his strong family life, his sense of humour, and his adventurous art-making. Following a year in Reynolds' life, the film observes him as he makes and debuts a big painting (Cloud) at the 2006 Biennale of Sydney, works on large-scale outdoor works, redesigns a swanndri, and takes time out to appear in an episode of bro'Town.

With a young family particularly there is no time, there is never enough time. So you make work on the kitchen table, you make work when you can ... I'm lucky I'm a full-time artist I suppose, but you have to fit around the clamour of a young family and their demands.
– John Reynolds
