Tim Burton has given us Batman, Sweeney Todd, Mars Attackes, Bettlejuice, Edward Scissorhands plus many more films that always peeks your interests. This creative mind has a distinctive style and approach to movie making. Not only has he reinvented Hollywood film making using his personal vision, Tim Burton has also influenced a generation of young artists. Most of his films are dark and humorous, the signature settings for his films ohh and stars Johnny Depp!
It’s obvious these two friends and artists in their own rights, work very well together. Since their first collaboration with Edward Scissorhands, they have worked together on 7 films to date and I’m quite sure several more films and projects will have this duo pleasing us for years to come!
Tim Burton’s field of work has earned him a place not only in the movie hall of fame, but the art world has been following his…. creations. It’s only fit that an exhibition should be given this special, gifted artist.
The MOMA (Museum Of Modern Art) exhibition gives us a complete retrospective of Burton’s theatrical full length features and shorts. We can also see a full range of his creative work, from his early childhood drawings through his mature work in film and his current visual imagination. This being the largest monographic undertaking in the history of the MOMA museum, the Time Burton exhibit has 700 pieces of Burton’s sketches, drawings, paintings, photographs as well as a selection of his amateur films.
Against the grain is how I would describe Tim Burton approach to life and his passion. Sometimes it pays to let your imagination come to life and run wild. Luckily for Burton, we like it when he opens up his mind and invites us in!
The exhibit ends April 26, 2010
