ArtMachineCroppedPie Face Pictures released a new trailer and stills from the upcoming indie film “Art Machine.”

The movie stars Joseph Cross, Jessica Szohr, Christopher Abbot and Joey Lauren Adams.

Here’s the synopsis:

At age six, child prodigy painter Declan Truss (Joseph Cross) was propelled into the art world as a rare marvel, but by seventeen, the tightrope of notoriety is catching up with him. Declan seeks inspiration as the immense pressures of an impending coming-of-age exhibition loom. His world explodes when he stumbles on a commune of rebellious freethinkers through an incendiary rooftop meeting with pyrotechnic outsider artist, Cassandra Moon (Jessica Szohr). Declan reaches beyond painting to wild experimentation, quickly spinning out of control. As he becomes consumed by his mania, he begins to regard his mother (Joey Lauren Adams) as part of a system that’s keeping him down, and magnetically rallies the rebels to take part in his progressively subversive art exhibition–one that will ultimately shock and destroy.

The dark comedy is directed by Doug Karr (“Ten for Grandpa”).

The movie will be available on-demand on February 6.
