Film Maker meets Painter

I'm loving these paintings by Jim Gaylord. With a background in film these paintings transport reality into mysterious wonders. Cartoon flat worlds taking over the three dimensional world of film. I found this on Beautiful Decay:

Jim Gaylord will be exhibiting new work at Gregory Lind gallery, opening Sat. Feb 5th and running til March 14th. Building on his past work as a filmmaker, Gaylord's work cultivates and abstracts imagery from special effects and action sequences in the movies. With titles like "Study (Braveheart + Jackass: the Movie + Cloverfield + Last of the Mohicans + Home Alone 2), 2009," Gaylord reveals the humor behind popular culture through the lens of movies.
