NOIR - Book
5th book in Gabe Leonard Art Books collection
This high-quality Art Book is 12” x 12" with a beautiful hard cover.
Inspired by a favorite Johny Cash song, "God's Gonna Cut You Down,” Gabe depicts the characters from the lyrics in the visual world of "NOIR.”
"Go tell that long tongue liar,
Go and tell that midnight rider,
Tell the rambler
The back biter,
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down,
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down..."
Gabe Leonard's paintings take you into a world rich with inimitable atmosphere and narrative intrigue. His work captures rich moods by combining the free brushwork of an expressive artist combined with the lighting and framing of a seasoned Hollywood cinematographer. Drawn to rugged and romantic film noir characters, Leonard merges technically brilliant figurative painting with a finely crafted cinematic atmosphere, creating snapshot moments full of narrative possibilities.
