About the Film The Art Of Following the death of his 35-year-old brother and faced with the emotional toll of grief, an artist delves into a year-long project to paint every day through intuitive abstract painting as a way to process grief and share his process with others. Along the way, this opens the doors to new conversations, ultimately urging the question: why isn't grief addressed better in Western culture? As a culmination to this year of painting, the 365 paintings are assembled into a final massive 10 ft x 20 ft image to represent a year of grief and further spur conversation over the subject.
