I Mean Not What I Do (Standard) Mark Davies

‘I Mean Not What I Do’ is so blatantly Elsa but created in Mark’s style that amplifies the emotion that may have originally been hiding behind the cuteness of the image style. A classic example of darkness and light where we look at the frustration that comes from knowing that a trait that a person holds through no fault of their own can cause so much upset and have so many implications. The hope being that this image will really resonate and generate empathy to the character.

‘Aurora’ features 3 intense images that are inspired by Disney’s blockbuster movie ‘Frozen’ that the long awaited sequel that is released in cinemas today! Mark admits to being a fan, of the movie albeit not the lead song! His ‘Storyteller’ works offered stunning interpretations of many of Disney’s iconic masterpieces and Frozen has long been on the radar. Mark’s personal bond with Lapland stems from spending two holidays there over Christmas and the magic has created a lasting impression. The connection with the Icelandic composer Ólafur Arnalds and the haunting vocals of Arnor Dan are without doubt all linked to the emotions that come from being immersed in such stunning natural beauty.

The aim for ‘Aurora’ was to continue to create art with meaning – especially when taking on something that is so commercial as ‘Frozen’. The images themselves needed to evoke the magic of the film and to be easily identifiable but with an exploration of the complexities of the characters shown. As with so many of Mark’s work there is connection to be made by those who can relate the character’s emotion even if completely unrelated to the film.
