The Still Centre of the Turning World

1 September 2014 - 1 September 2015

Dick Onians' new piece “The Still Centre of the Turning World” commissioned for New Capital Quay, Greenwich Reach, descends from a line of sculptures that explore overlapping forms. The spherical shape is a reference to the globe. The form of the piece with its equator, longitudinal features and tilt allude to the work’s location near the Greenwich Mean and Greenwich’s historic role as a centre for navigation and worldwide trade. The title highlights the idea of mystery at the center of things and our ability to see our own reflection on the inside implicates us in the central mystery.

Great War Commemorative Sculptures at St. Paul’s Cathedral by Gerry Judah

13 April 2014 - 30 October 2014

Gerry Judah’s twin sculptures in the nave of St Paul’s Cathedral commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Their white cruciform shapes evoke the meticulously maintained war graves of northern France and further afield. Bearing the shells of bombed out residential blocks, Judah's crosses bring to mind the horrors of total war, to images of which we have become almost inured; Verdun, Hamburg, Hiroshima, Beirut, Baghdad or Homs. They remind us of the ravaged earth of the First World War as well as the current Middle Eastern wars which, to an extent are the consequence of that First World War, of the chopping up of the Ottoman Empire that followed it.

GREAT WAR COMMEMORATIVE SCULPTURES AT ST PAUL’S CATHEDRAL BY GERRY JUDAH

13 April 2014 - 30 October 2014

Gerry Judah’s twin sculptures in the nave of St Paul’s Cathedral have been erected to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War. Their white cruciform shapes evoking the meticulously maintained war graves of northern France and further afield, in fact represent an utterly contemporary questioning of the continued need for warfare. Bearing the shells of bombed out residential blocks, Judah's crosses bring to mind the horrors of total war, to images of which we have become almost inured. They ask us to think of Verdun, Hamburg or Hiroshima, of Beirut, Baghdad or Homs. The wantonness and wastefulness they represent should also remind us of the ravaged earth of the First World War, of the millions of young men sacrificed defending or attacking mere yards of mud. Judah wants us to see in these works the waste and pity of all wars; perhaps especially he wants to suggest that the current Middle Eastern wars are to an extent the consequence of that First World War, of the chopping up of the Ottoman Empire that followed it.

Golden Rain, Michael Petry, FRBS

26 April 2013 - 31 December 2016

This large scale mirrored glass installation has just been given by Donna MacMillan to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their permanent collection. It consists of 100 large sealed bottles suspended down 3 floors in their main entrance to the collection. Each bottle contain a work/message by another artist who I invited to participate in the original project commissioned by Ha gamle prestegard for Stavanger 2008 - when it was European City of Culture. The work was originally installed in a 6 story lighthouse and recalls the classical story of Zeus and Danae, where in order to have her he turns himself into a shower of gold.
