"Film provides the distinct pleasure of seeing one's self, or aspects of one's self in the glamorized portraits of the screen star"
p.8 The Art of Self Invention, J. Finkelstein
I paint pictures that I pick up as seconds at a vintage magazine movie store in London. I choose images that I feel I relate to. I think about a lot when I paint escaping to the world of characters and stars, of the darker nature of course, to express my feelings of general pain, anger and inner solitude in the world.
