Why Noir? It's Complicated
A series on how film noir inspires my art- Entry #8
When we are engrossed in a mystery novel, the complicated plot tangles we must unravel keep us entranced.
The characters in noir are caught in a web of intrigue and moral ambiguity. Their exploits involve daring and danger, plot twists and betrayals. They usually believe they can manipulate a situation to their advantage over another.
The dream I weave in my paintings is a version of myself who is, in a word: clever.
Very unlike who I really am.
Like getting into a good novel or movie, my paintings invite you to take time and decipher what is being presented.
Why Noir? is a series! Read 'em all.

I love the play of windows and doors in your work.
