ERT Theatre Tree Mural
A fabulous opportunity to be part of the Opening of the ERT Theatre in Beverley. The brief was to create a mural that connects the local landscape with the Theatre.
The sketches I collected were snippets of the Westwood (a well used common land in Beverley with plenty of space, wildlife and woods) floral patterns and a suggested quote from William Shakespeare’s ‘Cymbeline’ ‘Hang there like fruit, my soul, till the tree die!’ The finished mural gives a whimsical, melancholy dream like feel with strong colours to stand out in a large space within a perfectly framed recessed wall.
I used acrylic paint, velvet material, lace and feathers.
