The size of these prints echo the large scale of the original chalk drawings, entitled Wild Ride (Parts I & II), derived from the 1952 film The Bad and the Beautiful. In the scene depicted, Lana Turner’s character has been betrayed by the man she loves. She is driving away in a state of total devastation and proceeds to crash her car. Fowler takes the stills from the chaotic scene and draws them in a new context. The actress is reduced to a tumbling, rolling, screaming vision, surrounded by white space, yet somehow she still sparkles in her glamorous mania.
This giclée print is on heavy, fine art Hahnemühle photo-rag paper. The smooth yet slightly textured surface of this paper allows for the highest quality reproduction of the original artwork. The inks used are archival and will not fade. Our metal frames are hand-made, using modern techniques to produce clean, sharp edges. We use UV filtering acrylic to protect the prints from sunlight.
