Original detective expressionist film noir 1940s retro Hollywood painting on high quality stretched canvas ready-to-hang with d-rings and picture wire. Marie Windsor and Charles McGraw stars in this movie Narrow Margin. The inspiration for my paintings is the glamour and drama of Hollywood movies of the 1940s and 50s. These movies often used expressionist lighting and camera shots. I appropriate and transform the black and white publicity stills from the films by painting them in arbitrary colours. My paintings are created using acrylic paints, gels and mediums and often have interesting textures and a glossy or metallic surfaces. Landlord is a painting of Ida Lupino, a Hollywood film noir star of the 1940s. Ready-to-hang with d-rings and picture wire.
