The Tiger's Bride

Stuart’s wife Polly is a musician, songwriter and performer who works under the name The Tiger’s Bride. Stuart and Polly began collaborating in 2011 and have worked together on a number of projects since.

Stuart designed and built the set for Polly’s 2012 gig at Hoxton Hall which included a video of Stuart with his face turned into the moon and silently crying, a reference to an early film by Marcel Pagnol. For a subsequent performance Stuart constructed a fake painting in which Polly appeared as a reclining muse who came to life in the opening bars of her first song. In 2013 Stuart and Polly worked on a photo shoot in Stoke Newington cemetery which led to the drawing seen in this project. Stuart also shot a Super 8 movie as the video for Splinters of Gold.

Later on in their collaboration Stuart painted Polly as The Tiger’s Bride, having already painted the Tiger himself in a gentle nod to Jean Cocteau’s 1946 film Le Belle et la Bete.
