Ushio Shinohara, who along with his artist wife Noriko (shown left with CUAC's Adam Bateman) are the subjects of a Sundance documentary "Cutie and the Boxer," demonstrated his "action painting" in Salt Lake City at the CUAC Gallery Monday night.
After the film was screened in Salt Lake City, 81-year-old Ushio donned boxing gloves wrapped in sponges. He dipped the gloves respectively in black and red paint and shadow boxed against a white paper sheet stretched across a wall of CUAC gallery.
Ushio's "boxing paintings' obviously have more to do with the performance spectacle—which delighted a packed CUAC crowd, many of whom were splattered with paint.
Ushio and cutie Noriko's art is being exhibited at CUAC through the film festival.
