Taking a page from Charles Bukowski and a line from Tom Waits, this work delves into a narrative, which has its roots in the everyman, addressing aspects of the underbelly of society, with characters on the fringes of culture. Inspired aesthetically by Japanese and European film noir of the 50’s and 60’s, these narratives explore the moments of intrigue when the fabric of mundane existence is torn away. Through a set of threatening or inexplicable encounters, the characters and their counterparts move though an urban landscape, participants in an ambiguous narrative and caught in the moments of pause between action and reaction.
