In June 2013 as part of the Coventry Mysteries Festival, I worked with community members and artists DA’nslow and Keith Witts in creating a seven day painting.
The brief was themed to Re Creation. To celebrate Coventry’s renewal following extensive WWII bombing, the painting was intended to show Coventry past and present.
Portraits of local people, famous Coventry people past and present were included. The backdrop to the Cov City clad phoenix is a map of Coventry set against images of the ruins of the Cathedral during the blitz.
