"Death is the road to awe."
The Fountain (2006)

A closing piece for my solo show MOMENTS, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery and ended on June 28th! I had an awesome time doing this series and can finally start uploading everything here...

This painting was inspired by Darren Aronofsky's strange and massively ambitious effort The Fountain. The scenes involving the "spaceship" were some of the most spectacularly beautiful I'd ever seen (MANY of the scenes were stunning); IMO the film itself wasn't always successful on a conventional level (needed some work on the editing and the script), but I really appreciated the director's vision and ambition, and overall it's a moving study of grief and death. And the soundtrack (just like Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream) is out-of-this world gorgeous and memorable (listen to the song that inspired my title!)

Painted with references on a Cintiq 21UX tablet in Adobe Photoshop.
