Now this is the kind of brief we love! Director, Prasanna Puwanrajah approached us as he wanted us to create a truly unique piece of artwork. The play was going to be dark, harrowing and sinister, and so we knew that this piece had to reflect this.
Having read the play, we immediately knew that we wanted the piece to be hand crafted, and distressed. We based the ink drawing on the Rorschach study, a psychological test in which subjects' perceptions of inkblots are recorded and then analysed. Terrifying and gripping- we loved every second of it's creation.
Mel’s willingness to explore diverse concepts and push ideas as far she did has created a superb, arresting image which fits perfectly with the production. I’m very pleased with the outcome.
