Graham interprets Phillip Pullman

LSM Senior Lecturer Graham Cooper has completed a commission to produce a series of digital paintings and animations for a new theatre production of of His Dark Materials, based on the novels by Phillip Pullman.

Specialising in Digital Media, Graham was commissioned by the Royal & Derngate Youth Theatre in Northampton to produce a selection of art works for the adaptation. He produced over 30 digital paintings and animations to form the background for the productions, which took place on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th July.
Graham’s art provided the setting for 60 performers for their puppetry, ensemble performances and a multi-media set, as they encountered rebellious angels, soul-eating spectres and armoured bears on a quest for wisdom, freedom and love.
