Giles Penny: Man with Arms Open
1995 | bronze | West India Avenue (exterior) | Art Map reference: A21
Giles Penny’s Man with Arms Open is a roughly hewn bronze figure with his head thrown back and arms outstretched.
Penny came to the attention of the Canary Wharf Group when this work, together with another of his bronzes, Two Men on a Bench, was shown as part of the Millennium exhibition, The Shape of the Century in 1999. Both sculptures were then purchased and form part of the permanent collection of works of art on the estate.
