Lady Of Shalott - 2018

'Lady of Shalott' is an animation based on William Holman Hunt's depiction of the 'Lady of Shalott' located in the Manchester City Gallery. Approaching the traditional story from a different angle, the Lady is trying to escape the claustrophobic and chaotic interior in order to experience the beautiful flora in the outside world. Rather than the traditional infatuation with Sir Lancelot, the Lady is infatuated with the bright colours which can be seen out of the windows, wanting to be at one with nature.

'Lady of Shalott' was exhibited in the Manchester City Gallery, celebrating artists interpretations of the galleries collections.
