In the mood for love - Anthony Van Lam

Anthony Van Lam

In the mood for love

59.4 x 42 cmWater colour and on archival paper
This painting is inspired by many vintage Chinese actresses, from Ruan Lingyu(Greta Garbo of Asia), Anna May Wong, to Maggie Cheung, who plays Ruan Lingyu in “Centre Stage" and, of course, the classic movie “ In the Mood for Love"!

No good movie is without lust, love, adultery, and sadness! This painting shows you all four! You can say it's all in the eyes, but behind all the screens, the lanterns, and the street lights! All the beauty and hardships are on your own centre stage!
