ABOUT

Born from my adolescent love of the heroes of page and film. The Luke Skywalkers, the Paul Atreides, the Supermans, Spidermans, Neos and figures from ancient myth and legend. My practice explores the fanatical relationship myself and others have with this pop-culture pantheon. 

 

Co-opting methods of Hollywood production and visual effects I make, star and write in my own short movies, posters and scripts. Donning the persona of Quixote, a courageous figure who, disguised in a chroma key green body suit adventures through a world of bretchian language and design. Theres no frills, no marvellous backrops, no monsters or foes to be seen. With the fantasy removed, it’s all for you and I to make up…
 Bravely breaking through the fourth wall! Tilting at windmills and fighting giants!
