Whimsical Abstract Gallery Art
Admit One Movie Marathon 171.5cm x 143.5cm x 4.5cm
This painting is an acrylic on canvas work. It is very large 142.5cm wide x 171.5cm tall x 4.5cm deep.
The idea's inspiration come from a movie marathon idea, where a mashed up of popular movies could interact in a fun and off beat fashion.
The painting which has a unique distressed/scratched finish to emulate the look of old scratchy film reels provides a really interesting matt finish and certainly takes the painting to a much higher level visually.
The included movies and fables include: Cliffhanger, Aliens, Predator, Tequila Sunrise, Spiderman, Star Wars, Gravity, The cow jumped over the moon, Batman and Robin, Close encounters of the third kind, Superman, Jurassic Park, Avatar, Snakes and ladders games, Thelma and Louise, Indiana Jones, Edward Scissorhands, Wizard of Oz, Twister, Flushed Away, Tarzan, Lord of the Rings, Little red riding hood, Three little pigs, Aquaman, Ninja Turtles, Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlie and the chocolate factory, Wonder woman, ET, Apollo 12, Godzilla, Scream, Shriek, Planet of the apes and Harry Potter.
The painting starts with Charlie and chocolate factory and the Oompa loompas who are guarding the chocolate river from the Orcs of lord of the rings and the wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz. After Dorothy lands her house on the wicked witch she follows the yellow brick roads finding her friends along the way until they interrupt a fight between storm troopers from Star Wars and Luke, Leia, friends. Dorothy and friends then get arrested by the stormtroopers and are taken to the mothership by means of Apollo 13 and watch the characters from gravity float through space on the way. Dorothy meets with Darth Vader and they become friends. Princess Leia then goes star bathing with Darth Vader in space.
I could go on forever about the intricate storyline that inspired new characters to join in along the way, but sometimes it is fun to try to guess the storyline as you look deeper into the painting. There are so many relationships going on between characters from differing movies, that it provides endless entertainment and speculation.
An awesome amount of time and effect has gone into this magnificent painting and Karen Elzinga has simply outdone herself with this movie inspired painting for lovers of film classics.
If you would like to create your own movie mash up, get in touch with Karen and commission a painting in her original styling. Karen's work is unlike any other, it is intricate and unique, colourful and vibrant and screams look at me.

How do l commission my own artwork?
Step 1. Decide on the exact size required ( I work mainly in larger scale artwork) Please provide width and height measurement.
Step 2. Send me as many photos of the area that you can from different angles, if you want a particular item e.g surf tower, lifesavers, boat, trees etc, take clear photos of those and tell me that you specifically want those included in your painting as features. Alternatively select 3 paintings from the gallery that you particularly enjoy, than tell me 2 things that you love the most about them. I will be able to put something together based on that.
Step 3. Quote provided
Step 4. Quote accepted and a deposit of 20% total cost is paid (deposit is non refundable if you change your mind).
Step 5. I will email you weekly progress with pictures so you have a record of your paintings progress for future sale or to show friends/family etc.
Step 6. Wait patiently (I can only paint so fast)
