Chiaroscuro vol. II

Behave © Lizzie Ridout 2008

'Soon his shadow was behaving properly, though still a little creased.'
Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie

One of the most magnificent books ever written. You think you know the story, but re-read the original text and be blown away by Barrie's wistful portrait of childhood and the imaginary versus adulthood and the real.

Sketch for a poster and postcard in the making. In fact the text will be partially cut out of the paper, not black, in order to let the letters fold forward. Shadows of shadows. The reverse of the sheet will be printed in a solid fluorescent, so that when raised from the wall, the sheet will appear to 'glow' and hover off the surface.

More when they're cut.
