I owe so much to Tom Phillips RA for encouraging me when I came out of university. He’s inspired me and pushed me to explore my skills, I don’t know how to begin to thank him. After assisting him to install his piece in The Club at The Ivy, he suggested that I design a piece for a particular space in the club.
Club rules prevent me from showing the full piece but I shall describe the idea to you. The piece was to be fitted to two downward slanting walls in the loft area of the club and I was asked to create something abstract to compliment other artwork in the loft. My aim was to produce a piece that used perspective and colour to make the wall appear more vertical and less imposing. I hand drew the design (the only way I know how), using perspective drawing then got the intricate piece lazer cut in birch ply. The colour has been created by collaging strips cut from magazines.
