    The Window | 2014

My site-specific painting for the Windshow @ Camden People’s Theatre in London engages with a community space that is both inside and outside, intimate and public. Walking around the building for the first time, I was immediately intrigued by a window looking into the community area of the theatre that doubles as a meeting space during the day and bar during evening performances. In the daylight, the interior was obscured by reflections but the bright, colourful bunting stood out. My goal in later painting and prominently displaying this view was to highlight the importance of the venue - which once was a pub and is now a theatre - with its strong community forming efforts.
