The painting is from a period of reflection on cinema, where I would often dream about scenes from movies and attempt to recreate them by collecting images found from internet searches for imagery.

Shogun Exit was an interesting realisation that the image I had in mind from my remembering of a film by Akira Kurosawa was actually made up of multiple scenes from two different Kurosawa films, one being Throne of Blood (1957) and the other Ran (1985).
