Saints out of sinners – the Cinematography of House of Cards

The Underwoods left the land of plausible reality end of season 1 beginning of season 2, entering more of a Shakespearean realm, caricatures of emotions and avarice. The plot and characters have rotated on this axis of moral extreme looking glass, a refracted lense to reconsider the depths of depravity, sex and power, plumbing the depths of darkness we encounter these scary creatures dimly lit glowing like phosphorescent fish in the depths of the ocean. For Cinematography’s sake the show required viewing, the characters move in paintings of perfect composition and color control. I tip my hat.

Start by Painting on Nudes — pt 1

Image

i have always wanted to paint

i am starting slowly

good friends like Troy Henriksen and Gaia

inspire me

make it seem tangible

i start with girls from WM

seemless backgrounds as canvas

then skin

then photo

the piece is the photo

the rest is ephemeral

at least this time

might as well start on naked women

this is a collaborative exploration

color shape structure

living art

the photo

the piece

the girl

the emotion

that have only dipped my toe

here is girl 1 of 3

she got fully nude

was compliant

distanced from the process

she was a passive figure who came alive

japanese in paris

always an intriguing blend

stay tuned for more

>i realize the childish nature

of the work

of the exploration

but a friend said to me

go back to where you last left off

guess i was 12<
