Georges Méliès Alphabet
Alongside the 100 views series, I’ve been working on a new set of prints which I’m hoping to release for exhibitions and sales in September this year. The series is loosely based upon the early French film director Georges Melies – his most iconic image being the rocket landing into the moon / cake. His films are full of imagery and symbolism that evoke stories and quite specific feelings. This set of prints uses elements from the films and draws upon the feelings that they impart, often being combined and updated to match specific dreams or events in my own experience. They do meet and interact with my own daydreams, creating new stories that are told in part.
