If you are a Tarantino-Pulp Fiction fan, and you appreciate the art works of Edward Hopper, Andy Worhol and Vincent Van Gogh, chances are you'll like Melbourne artist Steve Rosendale. Drawn from the inspiration of 1950's American movies with seedy motels, girls with a cigarette in their mouth a smoking gun and Cadillac personality comes the intriguing world of Steve Rosendale.

I use the term 'Incidental' to describe the work, in that the use of film as subject matter is really secondary to the mood or feeling I am trying to convey. 

 "From my earliest days as an artist I began using film, television and magazines as source material for my work. This really came about as a matter of pure convenience because I found it increasingly difficult to get models to pose ... while I painted them … I began to rely more and more on film to provide the figures I needed for the paintings … I have spent countless nights sifting through hundreds of films to find the exact pose or image I am looking for.

 "Film is simply a device that I manipulate to express the deeper, almost subconscious reasons for the choice of scene or figure..."
