Marcel Dzama is a Canadian artist whose work has been called ‘outsider art’. He draws significant inspiration for his creations from his rural home of Winnipeg and his paintings and sculptures often include strange and bizarre images of people and creatures from the local folklore of this area. In a sense he created a world where these funny and frightening creatures come to life. My piece is not programmatic or in any way trying to represent the art of Dzama, but at the time of composing I was very interested in his art and I drew inspiration from the strangeness and energy of the work.
