Matt Saunders

Rose Hobart, 2015

For Rose Hobart, a portrait of the late Hollywood actress, Matt Saunders used a film still from East of Borneo, a 1931 B-movie directed by George Melford. In 1936, artist and filmmaker Joseph Cornell cut and re-edited the film and used it for his surrealist short film Rose Hobart.
