Tuesday 17th May: Camille Walala at Firstsite

If you look at the tiny black silhouette of a person's outline under the enormity of the wall here, you can get a grasp of the scale of the architecture of Firstsite.  The gigantic slanting interior wall has been covered in Camille Walala's op-art interpretation of pop-art for the current show at Colchester's contemporary gallery.  The palette picks up on the pink and yellow of Warhol's prints and the pattern mimics his use of drop shadow and the half-tone dots from the screen-printing process.  Not only has she covered this epic surface but also decorated the front-desk and tables of the cafe for a complete Walala take-over.
