Crazy for Cult at Gallery 1988LA, is just a few weeks away!
So many cult classic films to choose from! I picked the Lynch’s ” Mulholland Drive“. It’s one of my favorite Lynch films. I’ve seen it many times, so it was a good choice for me to create a theme piece. I love how the mystery unfolds on screen and the noir themes. I like the unclarity and dreamlike storytelling. It feels like a memory, how you remember something, and then you retell it and retell it and the reality changes. I love the film for all this! Lynch will slip in silly dialogue, to never take yourself too serious! It’s so great! I heart it! Master Lynch!

I created a very simple piece, it’s a memory of the woman with a blue key. SIMPLE, as that. (Inspired by Lynch’s Mulholland Drive)
The genres of theme shows, has caused a bit of confusion for me. (Is it okay that I drawing your characters, mr. and ms. filmmaker?) Then I realized that films, toys and tv raised us. We all have a connection to it. It’s always fun to create the work for them. It’s like a thank you to the film makers who made the films.
I like it!
P.S. my first choice was to do a piece on “Showgirls”, but I only seen the film once and can’t remember the whole film. Memorable things I remember: Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley) from Saved by the Bells acting and the sex pool scene (looked like a shark attack). I couldn’t find the movie streaming anywhere online! So I choose to go with a film I love and I’ve seen the most.
