About the Artwork
This artwork can be adapted if the client wishes the red text to be removed from the standing column and an updated paint effect applied. Text around the fallen column can also be removed.
Background, history, commissioner of the work
Created during the Artists final year at Glasgow School of Art (2017).
This work explores the ancient symbol and structure of the column. Here the columns have been broken and sliced in a deliberate way, carving new silhouettes and create a consideration to the action which caused this. One stands tall, while the other has fallen, dropping its text on the floor.
