The exhibition will be held in a 5 story apartment building which was last inhabited probably 5 to 10 years ago. The rooms still look as they did when they were occupied. The room I selected seems to have been last used as a baby's room (the wallpaper design and growth marks on the door frame tipped me off). It is interesting to think that the child who slept there is now maybe 10 years old. The three paintings that I have completed for this show have images of children that are central to one of the narratives depicted in each scene.
These paintings are to be the first of a series of what I am calling meta-triptychs. I came up with this idea after reading about metamodernism
I am really looking forward to this 24 hour show. It will be the first time exhibiting since I attended the Artist Teacher Workshop and the first time showing my new work with the meta-triptychs. I hope the show is successful. That being said, no matter how it goes on Saturday, completing at least 3 new works means that for me it has already been a success!
