Far Away And Close Up

This is a series of linocut prints inspired by still frames that I’ve gathered over time from old movies and TV shows such as “The Twilight Zone” and “Tales of Tomorrow”.

The idea behind this series is one of displacing an image from its narrative and thus giving the viewer the opportunity to come up with their own stories or thoughts on the sujects portrayed. 

I was also interested in the concept of working from an image that is lost in time (both because of the fact that it’s not “current” but also because of the very medium it’s taken from – film – a sucession of rapidly “discarted”images).
