Tate - Queer Cornwall

I was commissioned by Tate to direct a short film exploring the lesser known queer artists of Cornwall in the mid 1900s. Lamorna is a small village on the Cornish coast, in the far southwest of England. The expansive skies and landscapes of the area have long been a draw for artists, most famously painters associated with the Newlyn school such as Laura Knight, Alfred Munnings and Lamorna Birch. Less well known are the ground-breaking queer artists who set down roots in the village: Marlow Moss, Gluck and Ithell Colquhoun.
