Love Will Find A Way (Romeo & Juliet) - Original

Mark Davies British Artist

  • Prior to sale this original was proudly on display within the iconic London Playhouse Theatre courtsey of Dark House Studio.

    My interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tale Romeo & Juliet illustrates a scene within a theatre when the curtain has come down but the light remains, the iconic balcony set is still on stage following the final performance. What we then see is the ghost-like figures of Romeo and Juliet reaching towards each other, their hands just about to touch.

    As with the narrative the two characters have to rely on secrecy and stolen moments. I have created this to represent the two lovers re-united in death in the hope to achieve a really beautiful and powerful image that is a lovely appreciation of Shakespeare’s story. The stone columns and balustrades are combined with creeping ivy and beautiful bougainvillea as if set on in a villa in Verona, withering roses lay scattered on the stage floor and twisting steps, not just linking to the narrative and portraying love but positioned as if have been thrown onto the stage by the audience who filled the room.

    I wanted to the piece to be atmospheric, through using smoke and shadows, subtle tones and detail and dramatic lighting I am really happy with the immersive qualities of the scene.
