Inspired by film and photography, literature, as well as music and dance, American contemporary artist Gina Higgins demonstrated her affinity for all things Hollywood, complete with glamour, mystery, smoke, and neon in her Film Noir painting series.

Each piece is uniquely different, with the exception of the portrayal of strong female archetypes and the mysterious male shadows that appear in nearly all of her works. As a Chicago Tribune reviewer commented, “You will leave her exhibits no closer to figuring out the artist, who almost certainly will have changed course by her next exhibit, but perhaps that is the allure?”
