Gina Higgins - American Noir image

Born in New Orleans, and raised in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, Gina Higgins’ paintings are a modern twist to the styling of the Film Noir film making of the 1940’s. The provocative acrylic paintings employ the use of trademark melodramatic low-key lighting and edgy camera angles juxtaposing elegant mysterious figures against urban backdrops.

Gina Higgins uses a melange of techniques, material, and styles. "My approach is spontaneous and controlled,” a delicate blending of photo-realistic detail with evocative imagery. Working under halogen lighting rather than direct sunlight, the acrylic paintings, have an ethereal and nocturnal appearance. Gina’s work embraces her figurative illustrative background. She describes the paintings as “what can be seen in the blink of an eye, like the flash from a camera.”
