"Drive" Inspired oil paintings by Christina Tonges Korn 2012.
I watched Drive again the other day… one thing led to another and before I knew it I had ended up with this.
Portrait of the main character from the 2011 film, made up of images from the film.
Tribute to one of my favorite films in the last decade, “Drive”. This is the main character played by Ryan Gosling: the Driver. Is one of those films where the photography and the soundtrack really captivated my senses.

"The scorpion was a visual representation of the scorpion and the frog fable. Yet there’s obviously this emotional side to Driver that makes him not only fall in love, but be willing to make a sacrifice. Making that sacrifice is sort of done by making the scorpion side come out. And the scene in the elevator is a turning point: There’s no going back. There’s no, ‘That’s not really me.’ She sees a side that had to come out in order to protect her, and she can’t embrace it. He knows she’ll never embrace it, and their relationship will stay one of sacrifice. Framing the scorpion without his head, it shows you that it will be the controller of his destiny." - Director of Photography, Newton Thomas Sigel on this shot.
