Steve Rosendale’s ‘Clint’ is a portrait of Clint Eastwood in ‘Dirty Harry’. He is staring down the barrel of the camera, a S&W Model 29 inch 44 Magnum in his hand. The scene is iconic, scored by the famous line:

“I know what you’re thinking. ‘Did he fire six shots or only five?’ Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I know I lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?”

Rosendale is inspired by the collective memories of popular culture. He sets up enthralling mise-en-scenes, elongating a flicker of film into an entire universe. A sense lingers that something is happening just beyond the frame.

Since the early 2000s, Rosendale has exhibited regularly across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. A finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize, his work graces the walls of corporate and private collections in Australia and overseas. For collectors of pop art, cinephiles and those feeling lucky, face off with the glint of ‘Clint’.
