Sunday Night Movies

Leanne Shapton
Leanne Shapton

Sunday Night Movies features Leanne Shapton's watercolours of resonant moments in black-and-white cinema. Selecting a brief fragment of each chosen film, she creates an indelible image that is both a hand-painted movie still and a personal response to a fleeting celluloid moment. Together, the seventy-eight paintings create a valentine to the world of cinema.

Shapton's journey through film history becomes a wistful celebration of the subtle moments in stories, which can often slip by unnoticed. What could be a simple title, still life, or portrait of an actor becomes both illusive and allusive through the medium of these personal paintings. With Sunday Night Movies she brings her love of film to light, and the effect is restrained and fanciful, familiar and all new.
