INSPIRED BY BYLAUGH HALL
GENTLE TAUPE, GREY AND WHITE BLENDED WITH TEXTURE
THE LOVE STORY
So by going back over all my images, I needed to create a backdrop that reflected the spaces you walk through when experiencing Bylaugh Hall. There is a strong tactility to the walls and that’s why the paint brush strokes are heavy and full of body. I have one particular memory of touching the wall and dreaming of how I would re-create it’s beauty.. and so here is my first attempt
Bylaugh Hall was the raw inspiration for this particular one-of-a-kind backdrop. A beautiful estate in the countryside of Norfolk which had fallen into ruin in the 1950s. After a long line of ownership, many parts of the beautiful building was stripped of it’s staircases, accents and beautiful architectural pieces. After attending the Litha Workshop I was captivated by the crumbling brick work, patchy paint and old world atmosphere. Some of the spaces are exposed to the elements and have a true weathered finish and because of this it provides the most magical and atmospheric location for artists.
