“The brilliant silent & talkie movie actor John Barrymore starred in two different adaptations of Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby Dick – both produced by Warner Brothers. The first was the 1926 silent movie The Sea Beast directed by Millard Webb starring Barrymore’s second wife-to-be, the beauteous Dolores Costello. The second version was made only four years later in 1930 and was directed by Lloyd Bacon, co-starting the delightful Joan Bennett.
I love both versions, and am completely swept away by #Barrymore’s range as an actor and his ability to transition from silent to talkies in such a short period of time….” See more of Homa’s COASTAL PAINTINGS 2022.
In her latest body of work (ART + FILM 2022), Homa explores images of women and eroticism embodied in by popular movie legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Elizabeth Taylor, among others. In these pop conceptual paintings, the artist dives into the history of some of the world’s most celebrated “sex symbols” from the actresses’ own view of their eroticism – their active and passive engagement in constructing their public images.
