Lawson Oyekan: Trial with Light
2000 | terracotta | Lobby, One Canada Square (interior) | Art Map reference: 48
Four works from Lawson Oyekan’s series Trail with Light are on permanent display in the lobby of One Canada Square. These rough-hewn terracotta vessels have been described by Oyekan as reflecting emotional experiences in their surfaces. They look as if they have been exploded and put back together again.
Oyekan was born in South London and raised in Nigeria. In 2001 he won the Grand Prix Award in the 1st World Ceramic Biennale, held in Korea. He had a solo exhibition at Canary Wharf in 2011.
