Our wonderful friend Daniel Maidman wrote a fantastic article on our show Symbiosis for the Huffington Post (You can read the full article here).
“I think we, we of this school, who grew up on science fiction and fantasy pictures, are seeking out older mythological and magical material because it often comes from makers skilled at endowing their fantastical images with human mass. We are turning to their idioms in our attempts to reclaim this heritage.
It’s difficult work, and most of the time the results are stilted and fetishistic. They belong on the cover of a yellowing paperback. But some of our lot are making good progress. In my humble opinion, Levato Coyne and Coyne are doing it well. So that’s where my soft spot comes from. I like what they do, and I like how they’re doing it. I hope they have many years of happy work ahead of them, and I look forward to seeing where they go.”
