This series of storytelling works by Davy and Kristin McGuire is inspired by the seedy, shady underworld of ‘Film Noir’. Inhabited by gritty gangsters, femme fatales, exotic dancers and disillusioned detectives, these characters come alive within a series of intricate, animated, wall-mounted doll houses. These magical artworks somehow take the viewer back to a child-like state of fascination and awe. The silent dioramas are made even more absorbing when you become aware that the artists themselves play all of the characters.
