This short, LA Nocturne, is created from the signature collages of Jeneleen Floyd. The animation is set to the backdrop of photographer Max Yavno and Lee Shippey’s 1950s tome The Los Angeles Book. “I hadn’t intended on using it for collages,” explains the artist, whose creations feature in this month’s “Kiss Me Deadly: Contemporary Neo-Noir from Los Angeles” at London’s Paradise Row gallery. “When I started working on the concept for the show I instantly went and grabbed it from my shelf. I decided to use the book as the character itself.” “It has all the elements of a great neo-noir,” says art consultant and curator Price Latimer Agah, “Symbolic allusions, a stark palette, foreboding music, femmes fatales, jarring editing and a dark mood of hopelessness and romanticism.”
