I’m thrilled to reveal my Silence of the Lambs design for Film 4 at Somerset House

Huge thanks to Print Club London for having me involved

Limited Edition of 200
500 x 700mm

GF Smith Colorplan – China White heavy paper, 2 colour limited edition screen print for Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House.

“I wanted the design to reflect both the intensity and subtlety of the of the film.

Director Jonathan Demme, choose to have many characters talk directly to the camera and I wanted this direct gaze to be a key feature in my work.”

Dear viewer,

Dawn is a cautionary tale. We hurt girls with casual negligence. We change the course of lives with a stereotypical view shared thoughtlessly. We shape the minds of the innocent. Let’s think different and be better.  

My inspirations were varied - I wanted the color palette of The Parent Trap (1961) the loneliness of an Edward Hopper painting, the driving tension of Night of the Hunter mixed with Hemingway’s unsparing style of editing. These greats are my teachers.

I layered a lot into Dawn and feel it’s best watched twice. Please enjoy for free and pass it on. THOUGHT+ART = FREEDOM

Peace,

Rose McGowan
