An Ocean of Oil by alicexz An Ocean of Oil by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Limited edition of 60 (sold out)



"There's a whole ocean of oil under our feet! No one can get at it except for me."
There Will Be Blood (2007)

A portrait on display at my cinema-inspired solo show MOMENTS, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery.

Inspired by the most memorable bit imo from There Will Be Blood (well, aside from the whole famous YOUR MILKSHAKE!!!! deal...) Such an intense moment, could practically feel the heat coming off the screen! In a dirth of "hurr look massive explosion" movie scenes I think this was one of most tense and dramatic. Digital painting in Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet; one of the more atmospheric pieces that I did. This piece is part of a loose "fire trilogy" of sorts that I did within the theme of the show, I'll upload the other two pieces later on.

I think this is the most beautiful painting I've ever laid eyes upon. "What are you looking so miserable about?"

from far away i thought this was a gorgeous mane of hair, and, well, it's equally beautiful as a fire.
