Synopsis
At age six, child prodigy painter Declan Truss (Joseph Cross) was propelled into the art world as a rare marvel, but by seventeen, the tightrope of notoriety is catching up with him. Declan seeks inspiration as the immense pressures of an impending coming-of-age exhibition loom. His world explodes when he stumbles on a commune of rebellious freethinkers through an incendiary rooftop meeting with pyrotechnic outsider artist, Cassandra Moon (Jessica Szohr). Declan reaches beyond painting to wild experimentation, quickly spinning out of control. As he becomes consumed by his mania, he begins to regard his mother (Joey Lauren Adams) as part of a system that’s keeping him down, and magnetically rallies the rebels to take part in his progressively subversive art exhibition–one that will ultimately shock and destroy.
Set against the backdrop of Brooklyn’s vibrant art and music scene, Art Machine is a dark comedy about the tenuous relationship between art and commerce, the fine line between creative genius and clinical mania, and the damaging effects of fame.
