Last month I had an exhibition in Berlin, “Bon Collage” with collagist Carl Apelicious where I showed my new project “Imaginary Movies” which were a type of digital collage.
These are posters which I made by taking some of my favourite “cinematic” paintings and imagining them as movies. I then made the posters for the films, imagining which actors might star in these imaginary films and what the critics might say about them.
The poster layouts are based on classic movie posters. The project is part of my research into the relationship between cinema and painting, which is funded by the Arts and Humanities Council of Great Britain.
Here are the posters I exhibited in Berlin. It’s an ongoing project.
I used the paintings in the project under Fair Use legislation.*
Thanks to Kotti-Shop Berlin and to Carl Apelicious
