Greenaway, Peter

Greenaway, Peter
   b. 1942
   An art-school graduate, Greenaway directed a series of avant-garde shorts during the 1960s and 1970s. The Draughtsman’s Contract (1982) introduced his self-reflexive, esoteric and opulent style, synchronizing text, sound, concept, image and visual technologies to enact a painterly cinema ideal within the architectonic structure of films such as A Zed and Two Noughts (1985), The Belly of an Architect (1987), Drowning by Numbers (1988), Prospero’s Books (1991), The Baby of Macon (1993), The Pillow Book (1995) and the Tulse Luper’s Suitcases (1998). Greenaway’s films resonate with enigmatic, erudite musings on art, love, mortality, immortality and the baser human instincts in a cinema that has bewildered and bedazzled audiences in equal measure.
