Description So far, there is only one painting here...'MacGuffin'. But it's a doozy!A MacGuffin is an object, event or character in a film or story that serves to set and keep the plot in motion despite usually lacking intrinsic importance.Originating with writer Angus MacPhail, a frequent collaborator of Alfred Hitchcock, the MacGuffin was popularized by them, and many more movie makers, in their films.Just about everything in this painting is either a MacGuffin or something from a famous MacGuffin-filled movie. Can you guess what the movies are? There are over 30 of them!
Ann Huey, Dallas Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I am proud to be from a place where so much talent has sprouted from oil and rice fields and drainage ditches and other toxic goo—Beaumont, Texas—a shady, stinky corner of the state that shares a tendency to mildew with its close neighbor, Louisiana. Naturally, I have made idols out of the likes of big time artists John Alexander, Paul Manes, Robert Rauschenberg (Port Arthur), photographer Keith Carter, writer Mary Karr (Groves), dead singer Janis Joplin (Port Arthur), and a terrific wealth of other-worldly-gifted, interesting characters not famous, but just as unbalanced.
