About the Work
About The Man Who Knew Too Much
A scene from the 1956 Hitchcock thriller cited in the title, this work evidences the artist's signature technique of recreating screen-based media as painting, with an array of paint splatters taking over the forefront of the canvas.

About John Abrams
"Film acts as a shortcut to reality," the artist says. "My work seeks to slow down this process, to force the viewer to regard film not as simulacra of reality that moves at the same speed as real time, but as a series of individual, small moments, a chain of stills."
Abrams has had solo exhibitions at Paul Petro Contemporary Art, A Space Windows, Accolade West Gallery, and the Toronto Alternative Art Fair International, and other venues. His work has also been featured in group shows at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and the McMaster Museum of Art. Read Less
