Art Commissions at Embassy Gardens
Sarah Lucas, currently representing Britain at the Venice Biennale, has taken inspiration from Embassy Gardens’ proximity to New Covent Garden Market to create a sculpture that takes the form of a giant marrow cast in bronze. Her work, Florian, conveys the humour and spontaneity of London, the city in which she was born. An artist who continues to challenge boundaries and convey a sense of fun, Lucas’s work will prove an eye-catching talking point.
Simon Fujiwara is a rising British-Japanese artist who made his mark in 2012 exhibiting at Tate St. Ives. A reflective piece, Fujiwara’s sculpture is titled Modern Marriage and comprises a large foot with a ring embedded in the sole. The piece is in keeping with the emotive and often autobiographical nature of his work.
