Johannes Kahrs. 93'09, 1997

Taxi Driver inspired a series of painted still which reflect set celluloid moments. Maybe unrecognisable as from the film but clearly displaying his masculinity and demeanour.

Helen Gillan- Just 5 more minuets, 2007

Inspired by the concept of children's innocence and naivity. That delicate line between fun and danger.
Cloaked bu unnaturaly dark water the children appear stranded, separated from one another with a new player entering from stage right...

Helen Gillan- Whispers


Helen Gillan- Static Air



Helen Gillan- Escape to Paradise

Inspiration was taken directly from the film stills where the images were recreated to tell a story of their own, filled with a heavy oppressive air and an impending sense of foreboding.

Tina Mammoser. Empire of The Sun

The challenge of the film paintings was trying to create a personal interpretations from another artist's images and vision. Many hours were spent viewing DVDs and making sketches of various still scenes to try and choose either the best moments to abstract or to choose various elements to combine into one painting.

A list for the artists out there...

Paintings that have been either directly or conceptually inspired by a cinema.
Recreating the image, memory or feeling from a movie still or scene into the new static media of paint, open for fresh interpretation.

Any suggestions or work of your own wishing to be added let me know. I'll add as I find.
