"Cinema is a mirror by which we often see ourselves... Cinema is universal, beyond flags and borders and passports." - Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu.
This grunge-style painting celebrates a love for cinema, and a fascination in the way art imitates life imitates art. Art tells stories, and stories connect us, open our minds to a new perspective, strip us of our preconceptions, remind us of our own humanity, assure us that we are not alone. Stories give us a reason to laugh, to cry, to reflect, to pray, to act, to argue, to agree, to feel... to be human.
This is the power of cinema. This is the reason I love movies.
