All Day Long

By Lothar Goetz

Abstract

For his exhibition at Piccadilly Circus, the artist has created an installation in response to the distinctive architecture of the ticket hall. He has produced a sophisticated composition of brilliant colour located within 22 former display windows in the ticket hall. The work is inspired by the architectural language of Charles Holden, who designed the space in 1928. Holden’s design, from the structural plans and elevations to the lighting and decorative details, aimed to provide harmony and integrity throughout. The dimensions and arrangement of the display windows provide the layout for the piece. Brightly coloured geometric shapes fill the rectangular windows and create a single large scale, rhythmic work, reminiscent of the constant movement and flow in the busy ticket hall. The shapes and colours refer to the colours of the Underground, the busy life of the station and to the radical modernist thinking behind its design. - See more at: http://art.tfl.gov.uk/projects/detail/1352/#sthash.rQvZuyez.dpu
