Lady Macbeth Series
Exhibited at Three Graces Gallery, Teeny Tiny Art Show VI (2010)
This series is inspired by British theater troupe Punchdrunk's performance of Sleep No More, an interpretation of Macbeth. I twist Shakespeare's words in my own way and play with how I can depict them visually. I have focused on Lady Macbeth, who I found to be the most complex character, and the Witches, whose visions seduced Lady Macbeth with promises of absolute power.

In this series I play with color as an indicator of mood with dynamic lighting to heighten drama and create a visual hierarchy. As a lover of animation, I also employ a sense of motion in my illustrations, capturing action so that the characters appear to have life beyond the page. Through the use of costuming and character design I address Lady Macbeth's emotional transformation, from temptation to wickedness to remorse, as well as subtly illustrate the convoluted gender roles discussed throughout Shakespeare's play.
