[ cimino district ]

This painting is an ode to Michael Cimino, an American filmmaker. He was born on February 3, 1939 and died on July 2, 2016. Known for directing the 1978 film “The Deer Hunter”.

Cimino is known for its visually impressive cinematography and its ability to tell deeply emotional stories.

The inspiration for this work comes from his film Heaven’s Gate” (1980), which was originally criticized but later revalued.

What is striking about that film is the visual splendor with carefully composed images and beautiful music. A feast for the eyes and ears.

The painting depicts the impact of the Industrial Revolution on the West and the clash between capitalist and human interests. With brute force these structures are pushed upwards and sunlight and space are secondary to humans.

Radiohead’s “Pyramid Song” is an introspective and melancholic song that explores themes of time, loss and the search for meaning. The text and music paint an atmosphere of dreamy images, in which the main character wanders through an imaginary city and reflects on transience.

Cimino district is not sustainable. It will & can not last forever.
