Art Description

Collage: Acrylic, Paint, Marker, Watercolor, Found Objects on Paper.

Whenever I watch a movie, I always have my sketchbook handy to jot down interesting thoughts, observations, story lines, and quotes. Fragmented and taken out of context, these collected words and phrases from the film create an abstracted narrative that, while running parallel to the original source, create an elusive poetry that seeks to inspire viewers to make their own connections based on personal associations.

“Sunset Boulevard” was inspired by the 1950 film noir classic of the same name. I had never seen this crazy and amazing film before, and yet, as I watched it for the first time, I had this eerie sense that I had seen it before. I realized after that the film has inspired and influenced countless other movies and TV shows, making the original almost seems like a parody of itself. I highly recommend watching “Sunset Boulevard” if you have not seen it.

“Sunset Boulevard” is made with mixed media collage on paper. It is framed using archival materials and protected by UV resistant plexiglass and is ready to hang. It is just waiting to be “scene” in your art collection!!
