An exploration of film noir in ceramic and print by Phillip Cosham


Phillip Cosham is a Hastings based Ceramist and printmaker. His work utilises both passions often with graphic images applied to the sculpted surface. His latest body of work encapsulates his love of the Film Noir genre. Artist Statement "Some years ago when I was about 20 I was unemployed for a few months and wandered into a Library in Croydon. The book I found in there was a Raymond Chandler Omnibus containing three of his novels. I remembered that a writer I liked had recommended him and said that every line he wrote was full of beauty. I was hooked straight away and have been ever since. Chandler writes like a film in slow motion, with terrific detail of characters, places and action. Which is why Hollywood asked him to write the screenplays to 'Double Indemnity' and 'The Blue Dahlia'. Most of his books were made into films, (all classed as Film Noir). Not all my pieces relate to Chandler films, but most relate to moments, in Film Noir, of excitemnet, romance and the'femme fatale'."
