Painting Series, Femme Still 2003

Exhibited at the Adelaide Fringe Festival Feb 2004 (Allure)

The femme fatale character creates the opportunity to explore ideas around strong women and culture with dark humour. Presented in a cinematic film noir and still frame style, the viewer is compelled by the limited information to piece together the story themselves.

“...viewers have a powerful urge to uncover or invent narrative... painting, like film, establishes an interactive viewer-object relationship that invites intertextual and contextual elaboration.” Robert Rosen, Notes on Film and Painting
