If my brief explaination hasn’t rung a bell yet, I give you some titles of the most recent films noir with the names of actresses who play the femme fatale in it: The Black Dahlia (Scarlett Johansonn), L.A. Confidential (Kim Basinger)and Blue Velvet (Isabella Rossellini).
Some of the paintings of John Meyer look like scenes from Film Noir. I stumbled upon this marvellous South African artist this week. Please do not mistake him with John Mayer the singer.
Other artist who paints Film Noiry scenes is the young Scottish Iain Faulkner.
I chose some of Meyer’s en Faulkner’s oeuvres to share here. Enjoy…
Unlike Faulkner, Meyer paints some landscapes too. They are also excellent to explore. I chose those paintings above because they impress me in a way that I can fantasize about what the persons on the painting have done, are going to do.
Nevertheless, with or without our own interpretations of these works, they are excellent and worth it to be adored.
