Val Kilmer x Michele Petrelli x Laurence Fuller
“Sand” was Val Kilmer’s audition piece for Juilliard, which resulted in him gaining acceptance as the youngest student ever admitted to their drama department. Halfway through the line “I’m sorry can I start over”, when his auditioners responded he knew he had done a convincing job of delivering a believable performance. Val then went on to become one of the most prolific actors of his generation. This piece is really an expression of the beginning of Val’s journey as both an actor and poet, really the only choice for Val’s SuperRare Genesis.
Home footage of Val as a young actor in training appears from the shadows of this portrait of Val performing his iconic role of the poet rocker Jim Morrison by the accomplished painter Michele Petrelli
