Description 'They Still Won't Stay Dead!' is part of an ongoing series inspired by the 1968 cult classic film Night of the Living Dead. The series began as an homage to the film's dark aesthetic and ominous motifs, but has evolved into something more substantial. The work is a meditation on the delicate boundary between life and death, or between the physical world and the spiritual world. It could also be seen as an exploration of the border between the conscious and subconscious, between reality and fantasy, or perhaps even between good and evil. In any case, it is the embodiment of the ephemeral space BETWEEN WORLDS.
