Gary Simmons at Metro Pictures

Gary Simmons uses a distinctive technique to create his large scale paintings. He creates the slate board haunting chalklines with a combination of pigments, oils and wax.

His painting technique is a true reflections of the dark allure of Midnight Matinee, a series of large size paintings of haunted dive locations like hotels and diners. The theme borrowed from abandoned houses portrayed in popular horror films. One room was devoted to smaller paintings hung brilliantly in a black and white filmstudio cutting room floor.
