The Crown of Glory (acrylic paint on cloth)

Inspired by… Ben Nicholson's Au Chat Botté, 1932

“The painting creates confusion in the viewer about which elements are real and which are unreal. In the same way as the artist, I have used the reflection in the glass to create a painting with two layers where the viewer’s sense of reality is confused. Are we watching a shop window or a street?

My course has given me the confidence to draw and paint and to take my time and learn slowly.”

Sara Davies took a Drawing and Painting Course GMOCN with Manchester Adult Education Service at Chorlton Park.
