A thoroughly modern tradition

Hyde Park painting

Christian Furr’s grand oil painting, adorning the lefthand of the lobby, invites us into a timeless landscape at the edge of the Serpentine, in our neighbouring Hyde Park. At first glance this appears to be a classic scene; a snapshot from a moment in history, but, on closer inspection, the characters hidden in the detail are thoroughly modern.

Sweet welcome

Sophie Coryndon’s wall sculpture transforms the miniature into the monumental in a celebration of nature’s vital plant pollinators. Sophie and her team took fragments of honeycomb and cast them into larger fragments, joining them together to form huge sheets of beeswax. These were used as moulds to cast plaster, which were then gilded and joined together. For a final flourish, the individual cells are filled with resin, tinted to match the honey made from different species of trees found in Hyde Park.
