The Big Painting

For Landsec

The Big Painting is a creative solution to the practical problem of wind blowing through the buildings at Cardinal Place in
Victoria, London. The sculpture was designed by Patrick Heron and his son-in-law, Julian Feary (architect), brought it to life on a grand
scale. The sculpture consists of numerous brightly coloured floating shapes connected with linear patterns. Neon tubes light up the
sculpture at night with a pathway of lights directing people through the sculpture on foot. The Big Painting was commissioned in 1998,
although the artist sadly passed away a year after the sculpture was unveiled.

For Mansell

A £25m complex at Devonport Dockyard has been built for the Ministry of Defence to provide services for the landing craft and assault boats of 539 Assault Squadron Royal Marines.
