A few images from Peculiar Works' workshop of my play, Floydada, last week at the Envoy Gallery in Chinatown. The impressive (and impressively extensive) black and white artwork covering the gallery walls is by Nicolas Buffe, a French artist living in Tokyo. The pieces for sale are actually less than half of this installation: between the paintings are design elements painted in black on the wall and then drawn in with chalk by Buffe; it really gives you the feeling of being immersed in one of his paintings. For our project, his mixing of classical images with contemporary pop culture icons made an unusual (but incredibly dramatic) backdrop for a play set in 1927 West Texas.

The photos in this slide show were taken on two different nights: the first, from house left, are by me; the second group, from house right, are by my PWP partner, Ralph Lewis.
