Improvathon 2013

jazamin sinclair / drawing, exhibitions, liverpool, painting, performance, Uncategorized, writing / / 0 Comments

Here are images of the artwork I created for 33.33 hours (2013 minutes) during Impropriety’s depraved & debauched Improvathon 2013. I documented scenes as they happened in front of me and used quotes for a lot of the pictures. I only slept for about an hour when I literally passed out/couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer. As a result some of the episodes/scenes could quite possibly be a bit mixed up and some of the outfits are painted using the wrong colours. To be honest, some pieces are also considerably better than others: I was after all improvising & didn’t have a clue what I was going to do when I got there. They got a bit better over time.

If you want to know more about the story/plot read the live blog from the weekend.

if you want to see some of them in real life, a few of these pictures are currently on display at The Egg in HeadSpace@EggSpace’s Painting Exhibition which is up until 12th May 2013.

All are available to purchase for £33.33 unless marked sold. Limited edition prints are also available from £20.13 (A4 size). If you were a cast member or part of Impropriety’s team, I am offering everything at 1/2 price. And if you want them framed they will cost more. Please email me at: jazamin@mac.com or call 07811059702 for more info.

33 and a 1/2 paintings created in 33 and a 1/2 hours #Improvathon2012

As mentioned in my previous post I was involved in a thirty-three and a half hour Improvathon created and performed by Impropriety at The Kazimer.  Here are images of the individual paintings that I produced during that time.

As you can see, due to the general sleep deprivation of the event and the short amount of time I had to do what I was doing, the numbers and names of the paintings became slightly mixed up. They are, however, in the order that they were created…

I will keep this brief, as I am still recovering from the sleep depraved, annual, thirty-three and a half hour Improvathon created and performed by Impropriety at The Kazimer. There were some absolutely incredible, energetic and completely improvised performances, that did not relent, from 1pm on Saturday until 10:32pm on Sunday night.

While the performances took place, I sat in a corner and I painted. And painted. And painted. And painted some more. During the time I (just) managed to complete thirty-three and a half small paintings.

And here they are all lined up like little ducks in a row…
