The Dorney Canvas

Dorney Lake

Since MONA LISA Arts & Media facilitated the day at Dorney Lake for the visit of Jonathon Edwards in March 2012 we were commissioned to create a painting on canvas 18 metres in length to represent the Triple Jump and Rowing Eight. The painting is by artists Rhonda Fenwick, Gina Martin and Lynda Cornwell including fifty children from Dorney County Combined School. Making cut-outs of their body shapes, the children drew round each other, posing as runners, jumpers and rowers which will form the composition of the painting. When it was complete it was displayed in and around Olympic venues during the time of the Games and then installed in Dorney School.
