Curator's Eye

The contrast between strict, mathematical precision and a joyful palette of bold block colours gives Emily Thomas’ sculptures a unique aesthetic identity. Using her work to explore the importance of architecture and its impact on societies, Thomas’ geometric, structural formations are deeply rooted in their sense of spatiality.

This series was inspired by the architecture in two contrasting areas of London: Peckham and Holborn.

Unit 2 represents architecture in Holborn, which has a wider range of different architecture. It is a much wealthier area and many buildings have been gentrified. However, unusual brutalist architecture, such as the Brunswick Residential and Shopping Centre, is still in place, as well as Lincoln’s Inn, which is the oldest Inn of Court, dating back to the 15th century.
