“I completely immersed myself in this film while working on this piece. It played on loop for days in my studio.
I listened to Blue Velvet, the song, countless times; it already being a song I love.
I really wanted to capture the beauty as well as the sadness of this film, but have a slight nuance of fear.
Jeffery peering through Dorothy’s dress is meant to represent his first glimpse into her life but also he ultimately exposes her heart on a deep level,
in a way setting her love free. Free of Frank’s violent prison hold.
The shape of the parting curtains are akin to that of a knife’s blade, representing the danger and violent world Jeffrey is unknowingly about to walk into.” – Matt Ryan Tobin
