Canary Wharf Unveils Award-Winning Sculpture
Drawing Cube (Blue) by Suresh Dutt.
LONDON.- Canary Wharf Group plc (CWG) has installed its latest art installation, Drawing Cube (Blue) by Suresh Dutt.

This striking 3.5m high sculpture in Montgomery Square, Canary Wharf is the winner of the First@108 Public Art Award 2010. The Award is an initiative of The Royal British Society of Sculptors and each year provides one up-and-coming sculptor with a £10,000 grant and prominent public display space.

The First@108 Award provides a unique opportunity for artists new to public art to develop the specific skills and experience required to compete for large-scale sculpture commissions. The award was sponsored by CWG in 2009 and 2010.

Suresh Dutt impressed the 2010 Award judges with his innovative, intelligent and ambitious proposal for Drawing Cube (Blue).

The sculpture is inspired by the distortion resulting from converting a three-dimensional object into a two-dimensional drawing, otherwise known as foreshortening. The effect is a striking and thought-provoking installation reflecting the iconic architecture of Canary Wharf.

Suresh Dutt says: “We subconsciously construct a space for every object we view; this space is an area in which perceptions, thoughts and phenomena can emerge.

“Reflection, transparency and colour are employed to define or conceal visual cues that inform perspective, depth, focus, orientation and scale.

“Looking at Drawing Cube (Blue) raises questions about what is real, the experience of reality, the reliability of our perceptions, and the relationship between our perceptions and the real world,” he says.

Standing in Montgomery Square for the next six months, Drawing Cube (Blue) is the latest addition to Canary Wharf’s public art collection, which was recently named the Christie’s Best Corporate Art Collection and Programme at the International Art and Work Awards 2010 in Barcelona, beating competition from around the world. The Canary Wharf permanent collection features more than 60 art works by 45 top artists and designers.
