Julian Wild: Origin (Vertical)
2017 | painted steel, polished stainless steel | Crossrail Place Roof Garden (exterior) | Art Map reference: 55
Julian Wild uses a range of materials from polished and painted stainless steel through to glass and ceramic. Recent work includes a series of sculptures that act as man-made versions of natural structures. These works also look at the relationship between colour and sculpture.
In some works the surface of the material underneath is revealed as he leaves areas un-painted or splits open a coloured sculpture to reveal its shiny metallic core. Alternatively he coats the surface in a beautifully finished spectrum of colour.
