I was commissioned by the Dulwich Picture Gallery to create a public sculpture for Tessa Jowell Health Centre in South London.
The large sculpture is called Osiris, based on the God of Reincarnation. I incorporated landscape paintings from the Dulwich Picture Gallery collection. At night, the transparent landscapes are illuminated from within.
A series of smaller sculptures of walking figures will be installed in front of these transparent landscapes, connecting to the garden and reinforcing the ‘figure in a landscape’ theme of the paintings.
All of the sculptures were fabricated by the artist together with Jamie Samuels of Creative Metalwork.
The project was collaborative, including artwork created in workshops with patients, staff, and local people.
At the launch, Jennifer Scott, Director of the Dulwich picture Gallery said. “I am so thrilled with your sculpture installation! Thank you for making your beautiful vision an even more beautiful reality”
