As part of the women’s floors refresh here’s a little behind the scenes footage of me at work.
a few weeks of large scale preparation and testing was followed by a high speed install over night in the dreamy liberty building.
The process is layers and layers of paint, washed back and sanded over and over then highlighted and defined
I wanted to create 7 individual, other worldly women looking over the wonders beneath them. Inspired by the liberty building it’s ghosts, colour and textures, combined with my research into Egyptian, Grecian and Roman interior figures, I imagined these women to be softer, surreal and abstract forms who ooze round curved entrances, relax over corners and look out from the walls. Of different shapes, colours and poses they surpass reality and personify fantasy, just as those who walk in these rooms and indulge in the beauty within them.
Go and visit them. Be in the spaces and feel the magic of liberty, Regent Street, London W1B 5AH. P
