An invitation to the Private View of artworks created by Venetia Norris during her residency at NLCS.


Exploring the Canons Estate and buildings of NLCS really inspired me.  This is not a museum and the old building is incorporated into the school, housing classrooms and reception.  I created layered drawings that echo a sense of new and old.  My intention was to create work that has a real and tangible connection to the physical architecture.  I took rubbings of architectural details of the old building and gardens.  Being at this residency in Spring allowed me to visit at a time when the blossom was in full bloom and framing the buildings.  I drew blossom and other plants found on the estate upon the rubbings creating a conversation in lines.  I chose bright and neon colours to communicate the energy and sound of the school.
