Blue Psycho Rug

Blue Psycho Rug

This is from a series of paintings all based around the film Psycho. Steven actually did a painting called ‘There is no rug in Psycho’ or ‘physco’ (watch out for his misspelling on some of these paintings and drawings).

There was indeed no bathroom rug in the Hitchcock film but Steven imagined that if there had been they might have shown some kind of residual stain of the murders they had witnessed.

This particular rug is a reference to the James Elroy novel ‘The Black Dahlia’, the famous LA noire case in the 1940’s.
