Park House is the largest development on Oxford Street, London for 40 years.
Invited to collaborate with the team at Robin Partington Architects at the design stage, the brief was to create integrated art works on a bold scale.
I wanted to emphasise the translucent quality of Park House, but to ground it in earthy materials and form. Imbued with an organic fluidity, the wood sculptures and the designs on glass have brought some natural warmth to this big, functional, linear structure.
Fragments From The Web (Detail)
Glass Frit around the whole city block. I painted the artwork directly onto a paper scroll 23m long with Chinese ink and a squirrel hair brush. After digital scanning a stencil was cut for screen printing, glass frit was then applied and baked onto the windows. Fragments From the Web is my overall title of the sculpture and design elements of Park House.
