Community (title of the entire project.)
The space was a very unusually shaped lobby that had an open stair case a large landing and forty foot ceiling.
The goal was to make the space into a welcoming center for visitors and residence.
Transforming the space with color and a meaningful representation of what a community consists of was the artist goal.
It was further personalized by adding unique aspects of York community. Such as the York Fair and the white rose of York.
The panels were painted with translucent dyes, gold resist and finish with pen and ink. They were all painted on Egyptian cotton and custom framed with brass and plexiglass. The seven murals mounded on the walls all had light boxes to back light them.
Community consisted of seven back lit murals all depicting aspects of the York community and one 20’ mobile suspended from ceiling titled LIFE. LIFE is the first statement that people experience when they walk through the doors.
