Borin Van Loon: Jury Room

The Jury Room
. Oils on digital print


"The first theatrical film directed by Sidney Lumet, 12 angry men was released in 1957 and all but three minutes was set in an increasingly claustrophobic jury room. Symbolically white-suited Henry Fonda seeks to gradually cast doubt on the murder case against a Spanish-American young man. The scene where an explosive Juror #3 (Lee J. Cobb) confronts Juror #8 (Fonda) is part of the gradual crescendo of argument, anger and persuasion; this is the subject of this work. I have manipulated digital imagery and oil paint to heighten a noirish scene of verbal violence on the journey to an eventual, satisfying resolution for the film’s audience.
