Llyn Foulkes One Man Band

Tamar Halpern and Chris Quilty, 2013, 82 minutes

A chronicle of seven years in the life of artist and one-man-band musician Llyn Foulkes. During this time, Foulkes creates, destroys, and recreates a pair of large-scale, three-dimensional paintings, one that costs him his marriage, while trying to keep afloat in the fickle art market. With interviews from veterans of the 1960s Los Angeles art scene such as Dennis Hopper and George Herms, the film reconstructs Foulkes’s uncompromising, up-and-down career as he was kicked out of the legendary Ferus Gallery and walked away from a successful career as an L.A. pop artist. With music written and performed by Foulkes on the massive, fanciful, self-invented musical instrument he calls “The Machine.”
