Another in my series from the Kill Bill movie.
It seems fun to do images from movies, I was tempted to do some from â€œTaxi Driverâ€ which I saw for the first time & quite enjoyed, but wanted to return to the Kill Bill series for sake of fullness & completion (loaded words I notice as I write this â€¦ as will be evident in a post still to come â€“ see image #450)
I like people who are glamorous because theyâ€™re wilful & talented & they can make beautiful things. I think that is what gives them a very special beauty.â€
In so far as I do â€œstarsâ€ both from the movies & artists (as does Elizabeth Peyton) there is some agreement with her, but for me it is more about â€œTruthâ€ than beauty. By the time the image reaches Thousand Sketches it has been in the hands of all the people you see on the credits of the movie, it is a social collaboration, and then I take a picture, and then I select an image from the 100s I take, and then I sketch & delete & select again. I think this is a form of mythologising, of distilling, of searching for the archetypal.
