Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

My favourite film of all time is The Third Man.
In response to a themed exhibition entitled “Undercover”, I was inspired to paint two versions based on Carol Reed’s classic film noir. It was a labour of love, as I sifted through various stills, choosing three scenes to composite next to one another. The images were blown up, tracings were taken and subsequently drawn so that the different scenes became one piece - depicting Lime’s discovery, to his flight through war-torn Vienna and into the sewers.
Shades of Lime v.1 is painted using sepia acrylic on card with the title above, the date, version and signature below, as if it were a film stock negative. The frame is part of the piece; adding a depth and solidity encapsulating a crumbling and edgy city where morality is as blurred as the shadowy streets.
The Shades paintings are among my favourites.

Materials used:

sepia acrylic on mount card, elaborately framed. Glazed
