Tom's Midnight Garden Exhibition
I was commissioned to design and illustrate an exhibition for Theatre by the Lake to run alongside their 2021 production of Tom's Midnight Garden. The aim of the exhibit was to enhance visitor experience and add another dimension for families coming to see the show.
The exhibit 'A Window into Tom and Hatty's World' imaginatively looked at four main scenes from the story through physical windows mounted on the wall. In the story Tom first sees the garden through a door but sometimes Hatty's sees the garden through a window. The scenes illustrated as layered scenes inside a box- similar to scenery on a stage, transport viewers into Tom and Hatty's adventures. The layered scenes are collaged, made from hand made textured papers, created by printmaking and painting as well as watercolour characters and other painted elements. I designed the whole exhibition including the vinyl wall info and hand painted the leafy mural surrounding the exhibit.
