@ 66 pally - near badamtalla

Stain glass like installation:  Each image has been created in the following process:
  • draw out the design on a thick transparency using a medium marker pen 
  • coat one side with sticker glue (calcicol)
  • crumple lots of coloured celophine paper, and then straighten it out
  • paste these straightened celophine papers on these transparencies
  • clean edges, peal pastage over wrong areas, re-apply calcicol to these areas
  • paste other coloured celophine papers, repeat 5 and 6 until the pictures is relevantly painted
  • mount image into cells using cords and holes punched into the transparency along the sides
  • paste black cord over the marker pen drawing
 click on images below to see details

pictures below show the work in progress at the pandals and then the final show.  the pandal is about 140ft x 30ft in size.  to estimate the size of the installation or art-work, assume that each umbrella is about 3ft in diameter.  the large paintings are therefore about 20ft wide each.  There were a total of 10 large paintings, 5 on each side.
