As galleries and museums have been closed for several months now I’ve been focussed on art outside. I glimpsed this piece, Column by Studio Swine by a new development on another of my bike rides.
The digitally faceted aluminium rock sliced by a rusted corten steel column is aggressive yet finely balanced. Shiny & futuristic, old & rusty, these qualities reflect the history and re-purposing of the City Road location on the edge of the City of London.
As you can see below, it’s quite a stark environment.
