A classic image of an elegant couple from the 1930s fashionably dressed for a formal dance. Part of artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider's Pulp art series, this mixed-media diptych represents the best of a bygone era. It is predominantly made with warm tones and a mix of dynamic shapes and patterns. A captivating dimensional display that creates a source of intrigue and nostalgia with natural cast shadows depending on how the light hits the surface. This piece is a diptych, composed of two separate 36 x 24-inch panels.

Rick "Marlowe" Schneider

Leland, North Carolina

Artist Rick "Marlowe" Schneider creates mixed-media collages, combining the use of handmade paper with a raised dimensional technique. "This process produces distinct shadows which make the imagery jump off the canvas," says Rick. His work is a contemporary nod to 1930s and 1940s graphic design. By bringing together bold color combinations and patterns with quirky typefaces, Rick's work embodies the fun and elegant movie posters of Hollywood's Golden Age. Inspiration for his narratives comes from his father who was a pulp fiction writer. His loft studio in Leland, North Carolina, houses his archive of pulp magazines and stories from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. "My workspace is cluttered with canvases and handmade paper that I have imported from Thailand. It may be impossible to walk around but the atmosphere is perfect for creating."
