Narrow Gate

Originally planned as a stop frame animation, this sequence of conté drawings, was inspired partly by Westworld, the 1974 science fiction film, set in a malfunctioning interactive amusement park. Other references were Saint Matthew 7:13-14:  ‘Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it,’ and the poem: ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost. The film was never made, but the drawings became a narrative series, describing a difficult journey through an imaginary Citadel in parallel with a challenging period in my own life at the time.
