Arising originally from Linda’s interest in the shop windows of Skipton which inspired her to create a series of paintings. The reflections in the windows gave glimpses of people going about their daily lives. The windows were, in effect, reflecting the life of the town.
One of Linda’s paintings features the Hair Salon ‘Reflection’ which became meeting point for their collaboration. Audrey had made an ongoing visual study of the inside of the salon, and the activities within it, using photography and drawing. She has been inspired by the way in which the mirrors are a constant presence, reflecting and re – reflecting the life within the space.
Originally planning to exhibit in June 2020, Linda and Audrey have continued to capture the atmosphere and changes reflected in the life of the shops in our town.
“ We hope that the exhibition will give visitors an opportunity to share their impressions and memories of the shops in Skipton and to reflect upon the changes which are in turn a reflection of changes in society”.
