acrylic and collage on canvas 85x45cm 2012 One of the important things about Newtown for me is living so close to excellent live theatre and comedy venues. And of course taking a walk up King Street on a sunny day offers brilliant skies. Just look up next time you’re walking from Newtown Square towards Thai Pothong: the beautiful old building on the corner there is often breathtaking. This piece takes some of my tickets from the 2011 Fringe Festival and re-forms them into King Street-inspired shops. And the sky!
