About this painting
A painting about fear, paranoia. This work pays homage to one of the most famous scenes in cinema history when the title character of David Lynch's The Elephant Man is chased in terror through a Victorian Railway Station.

The painting shows the looming figure, frightening... or sad and lost. A distant, malformed creature trapped in an ugly body and life, reaching out through a hessian hood, a hood of both protection from the outside world, and a prison.

Technical details
The hand-made frame is made from pine and jute.
