A heavenly new exhibition by a graphic design student is the latest to grace a community art space.
The work of Chloe Corcoran, who is currently in the last year of her degree at the University, is on display at the Cine Window in Winsford Cross Shopping Centre.
Chloe’s work ‘Heavenly Sins’ is a series of seven drawings, lit by coloured LEDS that represent seven heavenly virtues and seven deadly sins.
She has created delicate illustrations consisting of flowers representing virtues and hand gestures symbolising sins.
Chloe said: “This project aims to intrigue viewers about the heavenly virtues and deadly sins or makes them rethink their views associated with the theme.
“I think the Community Window is a great and easily accessible opportunity for all Winsford artists to display their talents, from younger artists in high school, which is where I developed my passion with the help of my art teachers, to the art teachers posting their own work inspiring their students, to upcoming artists coming out of university like me who will soon be a part of leading the creative industry in a new direction.”
Cath Campbell of Cine Window said: “Chloe is a talented artist with abilities in a variety of sectors within the creative industry such as: Photography, Fine Art, Textiles, Book Illustration and Promotional Marketing Design.
“She has a style which is rich in colour and highly detailed but also refined and elegant. It is wonderful that we are able to show off her work to the people of Winsford at Cine Window.”

Residents can follow in Chloe’s footsteps this month by showing off their own artistic creations in the Community Window.
Throughout March, Cine Window Winsford is inviting residents to make and share their creations, which can go on display in the window, by taking inspiration from a series of ‘How to’ films which can be viewed on the Cine Window You Tube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLf6WG-YFvp1OSzMzDGlfLFE05CD56CURD.
The films explain how to make a flip book, a shadow theatre and an animation machine, by using recycled materials from around the house to create simple moving image artworks.
Cine Window is inviting people to photograph or film their artworks and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be shared both on social media and in the Cine Window itself.
The Community Window is a free exhibition space for local artists, photographers, crafters and makers to showcase their work and nurture and inspire film making in Winsford. If you would like to exhibit your work there in the future, contact email@example.com for more information.
