I was recently introduced to Nick Bantock through his double trilogy of Griffin & . His works are filled with illustrations of his artwork. The work entitled The Hanging Boy is from The Golden Mean, the third work of the first Trilogy. It is not displayed on his website. This particular work struck me with force. It stirred my imagination and conjured up many thematic motivations behind its construction.
My curiosity led me to a search of the title, which led me to an article of fiction here on WordPress: The Hanging Boy by which I found to be eerily fitting to Nick Bantock’s collage. This revelation led me to set up camp here on WordPress.com.
It is the look in the eyes of the boy that, for me, is the gateway to many possible stories, perhaps in different timelines of what we know as reality.
In those eyes I see trepidation. Of what? Therein lies the tales.
Join me in an exploration.
What do you see in The Hanging Boy?
