View the First Few Pieces of Artwork for Aronofsky's 'Noah' Exhibition
Time to get a look at the first two pieces of art that are part of the upcoming exhibition in honor of Darren Aronofsky's new movie Noah, starring Russell Crowe. Earlier last week we posted news that Aronofsky is organizing an art show in honor of Noah in New York City called "Fountains of the Deep: Visions of Noah and the Flood." The exhibition will include work from 50 internationally-recognized artists, from celebrated contemporary artists to comic book legends and many others. Darren has posted the first two pieces, one by Carmen Arvizu, the other by James Jean, as our early teases and they're worth checking out.
Carmen Arvizu from Mexico made this "beautiful, textured, sweet take on the ark" - Tranquil Sojourn:
Next - art by James Jean, which Aronofsky describes in a tweet as "[sic] beautifuly sad, mysterious, scary":
Bonus! Darren just posted a third Noah art piece on twitter - "Surreal Isolation" by Greg Ruth, in full:
In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Russell Crowe) suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a revision by John Logan before production. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. Paramount has Aronofsky's Noah scheduled to hit theaters everywhere starting March 28th this year. See the first trailers.
