The Plasterers

A series of 4 large scale paintings and drawings made in response to photographs by Jane MacNeil. We’d invited Jane to document building work, going on at the first house we redeveloped as part of the Coming Home project, where I was Artist in Residence at the time. The photographs by MacNeil sparked the idea for a show that would eventually be housed at the soon to be named, Dead Pigeon Gallery. Many of the photographs and one of the large scale paintings were bought by Penny Lane Builders, who employed the plasterers, and now hang in their head office.
