“The Kubrick Stare, sometimes referred to as the Kubrick Glare, is a common camera shot of an actor in most of Stanley Kubrick’s films. The Kubrick Glare has been called the “heavy-browed look of insanity”. It symbolizes that the character in question is either really, really pissed or really becoming deranged, and the person they’re looking at is really, really screwed. Other times—usually when combined with a smile—it means they’re feeling really, really clever. Either way, it’s really creepy and ominous.”

‘Iapetus: The Monolith Waits’ (2016) by Steve Dodd. A brand new painting from Steve Dodd, his first new space/scifi painting in nearly 30 years. It is based on Arthur C Clarke’s book of 2001 rather than the movie.

Steve Dodd is a US artist who was at his most prolific in the 1980s with works featured in Starlog, Omni and Future Life magazines along with European book covers, art exhibitions with the Hildebrandt brothers and a commendation from Arthur C Clarke. For various reasons Steve stepped back from the rough and tumble of the scifi art scene which was hyper-competitive and he eventually stopped painting. Over the last few years he has shared some of his work with me, most never seen outside his studio. With this spectacular painting Steve is most definitely back in business!
