Daisy Patton’s painting Untitled (Picnic with Flowers) is located on the south facade of the parking structure adjacent to the Theo Apartments as part of the Continuum Partners redevelopment of 9th & Colorado. This redevelopment project reintegrates the former 26-acre University of Colorado School of Medicine campus into the surrounding neighborhood fabric by blending apartments and townhomes with retail, offices and new public green spaces.
Patton’s paintings start from a found photograph that is then enlarged and printed out to life size. She then adds layers of patterns and color to bring the image and the people within it to life. Patton’s work explores the meaning and social conventions of families, little discussed or hidden histories, and what it is to be a person living in our contemporary world. For the project at 9th and Colorado Patton selected an image that would relate with the surrounding neighborhood and historic significance of the site.
The mural portion of Daisy Patton’s installation was completed by father and son muralist team Chris and Will Krieg in January of 2019. The Structurflex panels were installed in August of 2019 filling in the two vertical spaces and completing the composition.
