Actors as Artists: Pierce Brosnan
By: Jim McMullan and Dick Gautier (1992)

 

Actors as Artists- PB in 1992 I never went to art school. I was self taught. I did line and wash drawings for Harrod's department store. I thought art was my destiny until a fellow office mate suggested that I come with him to a theater club. It was 1968, at the height of experimental theater in London—La Mama, the Black Panther movement, musicians, artists.  It was an arts lab. That's where I began to blossom, where I began to develop my sensitivity towards imagery, composition, acting, and music. That's when I decided to become an actor.
I really started getting into painting several years ago because of my wife Cassie's illness. One night I was pretty low in spirit and I just got the canvas out and started painting with my fingers. I tried to put down on the canvas the anger and frustration I felt. I just let it rip and put everything into it. I still have that first painting. It's called First Visit.  I used that painting as a prop in a film I just completed called The Lawnmower Man. First Visit- 1991- Acrylic- 18 x 24
After that first catharsis on canvas, I started to get more control by painting shapes. I have always loved the work of Matisse. I just went with the colors that excited me. I started to educate myself about painting and painters like Matisse and Picasso. I devoured everything I could find on them. My art is in its infancy now and I feel that it's with me for life. Wherever I go I'll always have an easel or a room set aside for painting. I'm educating myself as I go. Do I have a philosophy? No, not yet.

In relation to acting, art has given me more patience. It has balanced out the acting and taken the onus off it. Before, everything was for the acting. That was the only talent I had, I felt. Now I realize that I have a talent to make pictures and to create another world. It's so liberating. I'll always have my painting.

I want to see what it feels like to see my work in a book. I don't care whether someone likes my painting or not. But acting, that's something else. You want to be liked, you want to be good. With painting, if you like it, great; if you don't, that's fine.  The privacy of painting, the worlds that you escape to, the things you resolve within yourself—it's so special, so liberating.
