The enigmatic, haunting images of Marc Hagan-Guirey take the traditional craft of paper art and add a touch of cinematic terror.

The self-styled "Paper Dandy" has created a series of 13 traditional Japanese kirigami works for this show, depicting spooky abodes from cult horror movies - such as The Overlook Hotel from The Shining and 112 Ocean Avenue from The Amityville Horror.

Created from a single sheet of paper, the eerie images are presented within Perspex light boxes, coloured with intense shades of red, blue and green.

By night they are lit to reflect the horror of watching a scary movie. By day, the silhouetted paper sculptures are left white, representing innocence, purity and calm.
