"Make and destroy and make again" is how Llyn Foulkes' describes his artistic process. Others might simply label it "obsession." Tamar Halpern and Christopher Quilty's portrait of an iconoclast follows Foulkes as he labors to complete two astonishing tableaux that demonstrate his outsider's perspective and eye for evocative imagery. As his reworking of one piece stretches into its second decade, we watch Foulkes' righteous contempt for the establishment erode, replaced by a yearning for the recognition he's due.

While his artwork frequently offers only torment, solace comes courtesy of The Machine. In concert with this odd contraption of clown horns and cowbells, Foulkes composes otherworldly melodies that segue from charming to haunting and back again... Much like the documentary that bears his name.
