Helaine Blumenfeld OBE: Mysteries
2011 | marble | Westferry Circus (exterior) | Art Map reference: A12
Helaine is a passionate believer in the importance of art in public spaces and the difference it can make to people’s lives. She began by working on one side, which showed two figures in tension. Then she turned it around and looked at the other side, the figures had transformed into an angel soaring. There lies the mystery. This sculpture is about the positive power of beauty, of hope and of creation. Helaine would like to see this sculpture take its place as part of a restoration of the Human Spirit.
