Artist Statement:

A Cuckoo Appropriates a Nest
The Artist has taken a sequence of stills which summarise the narrative of the 1975 Academy award winning movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, then appropriated the images through the application of a graphic novel type effect to enhance their dramatic and emotional impact. This hard edged visual effect reinforces the movie’s theme highlighting the institutional brutality that was part of the treatment of the mentally ill and social misfits in our recent past.
