American Tan

Dream America (alternative versions)

Dream America is a series of eight films from the last eight decades, curated to accompany American Tan at Dolph Projects. ‘While not necessarily my favourite films – some are very flawed – they do encompass something of the essence of America’s seductiveness.’

These are alternative versions of the paintings shown in that exhibition.

A Place in the Sun (alternative version)
2015, oil on paper, 48x36cm

A Place in the Sun (George Stevens, 1951)
The American Dream gone wrong. This film marked the meeting of lifelong friends Montgomery Clift and Liz Taylor (who he nicknamed Bessie Mae). Liz is rich and ravishing and Monty is at his tortured, method best. Shelley Winters is the unfortunate victim.
