Freakin' fantastic Scott. I am very impressed that you even gave a little love to Krull & Raising Arizona (hell of a movie). Cheers buddy.

im declaring myself your new #1 fan!

this piece is incredible.. i hope you dont mind that i posted this on my blog..

Peter Debruge said...

Yeah, my wallet's still hurting, but the piece is worth every penny!

Was eyeing some of your stuff in the Gallery Nucleus group show, too, but I couldn't resist the Cult Tree. It totally plays into my fixation with movies (I'm a film critic, and even then, it took me a good half hour to figure out who all the characters were).

Love how you're able to capture a movie in a single costume, scene or gesture (Rosemary's Baby and Apocalypse Now are easily the funniest). And some of those pairings are just brilliant (Edward Scissorhands and Freddy Kreuger! E.T. and Pee-Wee!).

Nearly bought the Princess Bride showdown, too, but I'd already overspent my allowance as it was. Congrats on another amazing painting, Scott!

P.S. Special showdown request: Francis McDormand and Peter Stormare at the woodchipper.

I only found out about this show today, so I missed the opening, but I'll definitely have to get out to Melrose to check out the show. I love that you got Deckard vs. Pris and Lee vs. Jabbar in there.

Kristin said...

the third one is Raising Arizona, right? But for the life of me I can't figure out the second to last one. Anyone else know?

Peter Debruge said...

Second to last is Krull ( For the moment, Krull and Road Warrior are still available through Gallery 1988.

Jublin said...

so many fantastic obscure movie characters in that tree. It's so much fun to go through and figure out each movie. I absolutely love it. really great job!

Elisa said...

Hi Scott!

One of my friends sent me a pic of your Cult Tree and we had a great time IM'ing back and forth, finding the various cult films/characters.

I was really excited when I realized it was part of the exhibition here in LA and it was the motivating factor for me to attend the show. It's absolutely stunning in person! I love it! I also really loved your little "dueling" drawings there as well.

My only teeny-tiny qualm - Where's Herbert West from Re-Animator?

Keep up the good work. :)

Carly Monardo said...

Oh man, those showdowns are adorable! I think the Blade Runner one is my favorite!

elaineisthebest said...

Please tell me someone has posted an entire list of all the films referenced? This poster is too awesome. :)
