Steve Rosendale’s ‘Permanent Midnight’ is gleaned from the eponymous film adaptation of Jerry Stahl’s autobiography. It tells the story of Stahl’s rise from a small-time television writer to a successful comedy writer alongside his experience as a recovering addict.

Rosendale’s work draws upon the collective memories of popular culture. He sets up enthralling mise-en-scenes, elongating a flicker of film into an entire self-contained universe; what’s more is this universe is dappled with notalgia. ‘Permanent Midnight’ occurs in a universe that we will never experience and yet it is somehow familiar. What is nostalgia amputated from experience?

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, sparking the imagination of all who view it. For collectors of pop art and connoisseurs of film and fast cars, drive away in ‘Permanent Midnight’.
