"This is my interpretation of the 1980s classic film Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade entitled ‘‘X Never, Ever Marks the Spot!’ a classic quote taken from the film. My aim for this piece was to simply embrace all that is brilliant about the movie and what has made it achieve iconic status for so many rather than trying to inject a deeper, more surreal narrative that could possibly be missed.
So what we see is an engaging and dramatic scene that focuses on the temple and surrounding cliffs, so much detail from the film is there to be explored and enjoyed, some blatant, some requires a little more searching. As with so many of my pieces you don’t get to see the characters, instead it is these objects and their positioning as well as other subtle detailing that creates an open-ended image that is designed to be interpreted however you see it playing out in your head, you pick up the pieces and run with it!"
