Below are installation photographs taken of Kite II at the Bonington Gallery, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham. The painting was created as an opportunity to test out a wall painting in a white cube space during The Summer Lodge at Nottingham Trent University in July 2014. The configuration was taken from a smaller painting Kite I and this work is featured in an earlier series entitled Nets.
"For ten days each July, the Fine Art studios and workshops at Nottingham Trent University are transformed into The Summer Lodge and play host to a gathering of thirty diverse artists. It is intended as an opportunity to think through making by being able to work for a while without many of the usual constraints and distractions. It is a collective space in which to undertake experiments, pursue new ideas and allow unexpected leaps of imagination."
