Creation of Backdrop (time lapse video)

, Ivan Kashdan, 2023

Current MA student Ivan Kashdan recently completed 'Backdrop', a 5 x 10m triptych created on the Bloomsbury Theatre paint frame, formerly used by students on the Slade Theatre Design course, which closed in 2003.

The photos show the work installed in the Bloomsbury Theatre auditorium and the time-lapse records the process of making the painting over two months.

The paint frame is available for hire via UCL Culture.
