The inspiration for this painting came from two areas that discuss the idea of Revival; both areas are the polar opposite to one another, but have similarities. The first is the folk custom or performance the Mummer’s Play, which happens over major religious events in the year and discusses the idea of life, death and rebirth. The second is the online multiplayer game Over Watch, where a player’s character can be ‘Rezed’ or re-spawned if killed. This means he or she is revived, given new life, again emphasising this idea of life, death and rebirth; having a consistent elevation in the game for the player and the player’s character. There is also an emphasis of spiritual fervour when involved in such an online game as Over Watch where the player is revived to continue their quest and this then is similar to the Mummer’s Plays where if a performer’s character is slain, they are revived by a magical potion.
