Exhibit preview: "I've Got a Bad Feeling About This"
For the Gallery at the Gateway's second exhibition, local artist Adam Brouillette created a series of works based on his favorite films, including the original "Star Wars" trilogy, "Ghostbusters," "Star Trek," "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "Moby Dick," "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."
"All of these are movies I continually watch while I create work. I'm interested in the mythology behind them, and I always have been. To say I'm a big fan of some of them would be an understatement," Brouillette said. "I can say quite easily that I have seen the entire original 'Star Wars' trilogy over 500 times. Easily."
The mythology in these movies allows for the artist to explore his own feelings about current issues by using, for instance, "Indiana Jones as a reluctant hunter of religious artifacts to tell my own story of dissatisfaction with current religious conflicts, or using the planet-exploring Star Trek officers to tell my awkward feelings about suburban sprawl."
