The Lobster reveals the story of a society, very close to our own, but with an evolved perspective on the requirements of love and the union of couples. This surreal world takes us on journey through a bilious color palette; where humans who can't couple up are turned into animals. A wickedly funny protest against imposed societal guidelines and preference for relationships, that escalates its own sly logic into a love story of profound tenderness and originality.
"The cinema photography inspired me to render a scenery, landscape and feeling of a couple isolated in a forrest. A location where two people are restricted to love, yet fall in love. In the coldness; WIND, DAMP WOOD, LAKE and FORREST LEAVES they find warmth. In the danger and darkness; the ANIMAL and BLOODY undertones they find COMFORT and LIGHT. This is a fragrance that is ultimately HERBAL, GREEN, WET, DARK, ANIMAL and WOODY, and twisted with a bouquet of WILD FLOWERS to represent the society they left, the new one they found and will soon leave again..." - Mark Buxton
