No Holds Barred the Life and Art of Matthew Lanyon
Running Time:
65mins
Genre:
Documentary
Synopsis:
65 minute archive led documentary by Barbara Santi and Judith Lanyon. No Holds Barred reaches into the remarkable life of Matthew Lanyon, the late Cornish artist whose reclusive, comedic disposition disguised a fierce dedication to art, powered by love and loss. He was the second son of Peter Lanyon, the well-known, ground breaking modernist painter who died tragically when Matthew was 13. Matthew’s family, collectors and collaborators describe a man with a visionary talent and intellect, for whom the usual boundaries between art and life did not apply. This moving film creates a rare magic from Matthew’s own words, his previously unseen audio-visual archive, and the breathtaking geology of West Cornwall.
