The Barbican Estate is known for its grandeur. As a resident, I appreciate the small, intricate details on the Estate: well polished brass door handles; glass reflections; the small inset Barbican logo or numbers inset on glass; the red fire and safety boxes; glass entrance doors leading to lifts or corridors which let one feel a sense of space both inside and out. There is much frailty, delicacy and an interest in small features which I hope is captured in these small recycled palette paper works. There is an abstract quality to these works which is to my mind consistent with their more public content. Many feature colourful reflections seen on glass doors in the evening, through hallways and on the podium. There is a strong sense of time, place and familiarity. While much of my work features landscapes captured from my balcony studio, I am also curiously fascinated by these small details. There is real care and attention to detail to be found across the Estate and this signifies a concern for the people that live here. There is small joy to be found everywhere if one looks - even in the dancing lights on the podium by the architect's office on the podium.
