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.
