Who is Arthur? Why must we remember him? Was he ever ordinary?
This book is an exploration of an artist's mind. Half-way between a luscious, sensual fantasy world and a mundane, fluoro-lit suburban reality exist feathered housewives, forgotten children and girls encased in gingerbread. It is they who populate these pages.
Fleur is a story teller and she uses every medium available to her – words, theatre, photography and modeling- to weave her tales. This is not simply a book of pretty pictures but a cry from the borderlands of conciousness where a battle is being waged between the imagination and the every day.
Fleur is a 22 year old artist living and practicing in Melbourne. She has recently completed her post-graduate training in theatre direction at The Victorian College of the Arts under the guidance of Jenny Kemp. She is a prolific model and photographer, working under the name 'Halohid', a theatre director, playwright, stage manager, lighting technician and scruffy hippie.
