Emma Biggs: Sartor Resartus
2003 | stone and glass mosaic | Heron Walk, link to Jubilee Place (interior) |Art Map reference: D8
Emma Biggs’ Mosaic Workshop has established itself as one of Britain’s leading studio workshops, creating walls, floors and small-scale artworks using the ancient method of mosaic. Sartor Resartus depicts a playful collage of the different forms of dress of the office workers of Canary Wharf.
Between the two wall panels, a floor roundel shows an amusing collage of footwear, from office brogues to dance slippers. Additional mosaics by Biggs are found in Cabot Place and Jubilee Place malls.
