Ghost Stories & Fairy Tales

Step into a fantastical world of miniature dioramas, puppetry, dreamlike paintings, thematic light and sound, all depicting original tales of the mystical and mythic. The stories are timeless and somehow familiar, as if conjured from a shared memory; or an imaginary world that has to be believed to be seen.

It’s a different and older kind of magic, and it might be more powerful for it.

“Mitchell’s montage method concerns itself…with the accretion of meaning – not just the build-up of information, but the generation of new, amplified and modulated sensation. Mitchell’s heraldic compositions gain their strength and tension not from the drama inherent in their elements, but from the new drama that emerges from their juxtaposition.”
