What I did: Poster design, poster illustration, one year contract

What the client needed

Dundee Contemporary Art (DCA) approached me looking for an artist to illustrate exclusive prints highlighting some of the most exciting new titles screened at DCA throughout 2023. The film posters should be delivered on a monthly bases from January to December 2023, starting with Tár directed by Todd Field. The aim of these artworks will be to take viewers on a journey through a range of titles that will represent everything that’s special about DCA Cinema – an independent spirit and a passion for brilliant stories, beautifully told.

The DCA will make these illustrations available as high-quality prints for DCA Members to collect when they come to see our chosen film each month.

Tár, directed by Todd Field

It’s a dark film, a powerful film and from my impression, all about control. The image dances and flickers within the movement of the even metronome revealing glimpses of conductor’s hands and Cate Blanchett starring as Lydia Tár.
