I helped install the Black and White flower painting at Charing Cross Hospital this week. A collaborative art work made by staff and students in Graduate Painting.
Last December we were all given a blank canvas to create our vision of a Black and White Flower painting. I had initially thought the only good thing about painting flowers were the colours, so had no idea how to embark on a painting without all the exciting bits. It took a few months of experimenting in the studio to realise that theme wasn’t quite so removed from my practice, and layered gloss and matt paints to create a work that I am now really proud of. It will be on display in the hospital until November.
