Here images convey a noir-esque inspired tale, reduced to simple constructs and symbolic miniatures. Visually inspired by the comic book aesthetic, especially the work of Frank Miller in the 'Sin City' series, this comic book aesthetic has inspired the presentation of the work as a giant comic book page. By reducing the noir world to a black dark construct the work references the power and dominance of shadows in film noir and the danger of the noir world. It is against these shadows that the characters stand and fight, isolated patches of light in stark contrast to the dark world around them. Each miniature is an injection of colour into a bleak world symbolically defined by their colour.
