Painting Machines

British artist Natasha Kidd makes painting machines. These machines plunge blank canvases in and out of vats full of white paint for weeks as they build layer upon thin layer of paint, forming bumps, ridges and drips in the process. The resulting paintings have a sculptural beauty and are surprisingly delicate to be the product of a machine.
