CWG ARTS + EVENTS

Similarly, that is how I approach painting the architecture that has inspired me. I explore the multifaceted identity of modern architecture by looking at the impact of contemporary buildings on their surroundings and how they reflect and absorb them, creating a new perception designed to awaken the imagination of the viewer. I reduce the environment to the shapes and grids that hold it together, including all the shadows, reflections, sunbursts, clouds, people, other passing objects, chance and accidental elements that have all contributed to the way the city looks at that moment in time. The reassembled architecture explores the relationship between the inside and outside of London; the face presented to the world and the life that thrives within, blending and blurring to create structural harmony. The result is a vibrant interplay of organic and geometric shapes that are at once figurative and abstract, as unique as the individuals who live and work in the city and who make it the incredible place it is.” The London Festival of Architecture is Europe’s largest annual architecture event, celebrating London as a global hub of architectural experimentation, practice and debate. The 2018 programme showcases an eclectic and diverse series of 400 events that explore this year’s ‘identity’ theme across London from 1 – 30 June. londonfestivalofarchitecture.org
