The ‘Thunderbird Motel’ is the kind of destination that a hero and his heroine would cruise up to, the kind of place our protagonist would hide out in, sipping sangria beside the pool. In his practice, Steve Rosendale sifts through hundreds of film stills, searching for an evocation. Here, in the golden hour of yesteryear, he finds just that.

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. A sense lingers that something is happening just beyond the frame. Mystery, drama, suspense stew – this is a cinematic subterfuge at its finest.

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 vintage culture, book in at the ‘Thunderbird Motel’ before the best spots are taken.
