Artist Jack Vettriano to give a talk about David Lynch’s ‘Blue Velvet’ at the Glasgow Film Festival

Jack Vettriano the artist who hails from Fife, Scotland is to delve into the dark world of David Lynch’s Blue Velvet on 22 September at the Glasgow Film Festival.

The talk will follow the day after his own exhibition opens – a retrospective of his work held at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

It isn’t hard to glean the shared sensibilities of dark exotica between Vettriano and Lynch when you look at his work, featured on his website http://www.jackvettriano.com/ and the scenes found in Blue Velvet. In fact, if you delve deeper you can find a whole host of imagery with dark, sexual undertones.
