“I Move the Stars for No One” – Labyrinth Piece Complete!

Hey everyone – my latest painting opens at Gallery 1988 today for their new show “3o Years Later”. In true Gallery 1988 style – artists were asked to make a piece inspired by movies created 30 years ago in 1986. Considering I was born late 1987 – it kinda makes me feel a bit old lol! The movie Labyrinth however did in fact come out in 1986 and therefore was my inspiration for this show. It was a tough call between that and Highlander… but I think I made the right choice in the end 😉

I’ll tell you guys a secret though, I hadn’t actually watched the movie until recently. You’ll laugh at me but I have this semi-fear of those weird rubbery robot/puppets they used back in the 80s (like in Neverending Story). They really creeped me out as a kid so I avoided most of them lol! Anyway… judgement time over. My son and I watched Labyrinth together and we both really enjoyed it, creepy puppet things aside.

I wanted to capture a bit of the magic from the movie in my own painting, but at the same time keep it soft and simple. It just so happened to go perfectly with the title in the end.
