Photomontage and illustration. For Dreamchord Luxe.
I am thinking of producing a series (within a series) based upon the dreams of a girl called Madeline. The girl herself may never appear, only her thoughts and fantasies and fears. I like the idea of what lies hidden, what isn't quite shown within the image, only suggested, like feet peeping out behind curtains, vague mirror images. An emphasis upon the ephemeral, the passage of time. I imagine that she lives in Paris, or perhaps only a memory of Paris, for Madeline after all shall never become real. She lives with one parent, like the herione's in fairytales, and the parent is possibly bewitched. Madeline loves the frost patterns which magically appear on the windowpanes in winter, the visiting birds who tell her of what goes on down in the streets outside...for Madeline's physical body never leaves her appartment.
I am also thinking of creating a photobook of the Dreamchord Luxe series. I have always felt that these images must be presented together as a group, one leading on from the other, rather than functioning as stand alone prints. I would also love to add random segments of text, or weird litle poems, which would be a really nice project for the future!
