Stars Don't Only Come Out At Night. Collage. Shelby Pizzarro
Inspired by Old Hollywood, I set upon my collage. I found a selection of black and white photos of actresses I admire and lined them up with my own version of six degrees of separation. The map of Hollywood, metallic silver paper, art papers and vintage edit from "True Story" magazine completed the piece.
I know that most information released through the Studio system was pure fantasy. But at times, this is what I long for. Is there anything wrong with "happy ever after"?
Have we lost the mystery and glamour of Old Hollywood? Does today's silver screen seem a bit tarnished? Do dreams and fantasy still shape your life and your creative endeavours? May you always have a place for your own "happy ever after".
