Terminal 5 VAT reclaim lounge sculptures
From August the T5 Gallery will be displaying sculptures in the newly opened Terminal 5 VAT reclaim lounge.
The lounge is located directly opposite the gallery and will display smaller works from T5 Gallery artists over the coming months.
The first works to be displayed will be from Michael Turner, a Lion and Falcon both in stainless steel.
This will be followed by Jo Vane’s ‘Wave I’, with works rotated on a regular basis.
Richard Thornton at InterContinental London – The O2
As part of the ongoing relationship between the T5 Gallery and the InterContinental London – The O2 hotel, a new sculpture by Richard Thornton is currently on display.
‘Folding Sail’ beautifully displays the organic lines and forms that Richard is known for while also referencing the the important maritime history of Greenwich.
Tiger by Michael Turner
Michael’s newest creation is also his most ambitious to date. His ‘Tiger’ has an imposing presence at over 2 metres in height and 2.5 metres in length.
The interwoven copper elements are a striking addition subtly highlighting the animals form and contrasting superbly with the stainless steel.
Michael’s Tiger is now on display at the gallery.
Michael Turner – ‘Hammerhead’
During July sculptor Michael Turner will be showing the newest piece in his continuing exploration of marine creatures.
The Hammerhead shark is a fearsome predator adept at hunting in large schools or alone and distinctive in its appearance.
The high level of detail that Michael has become known for is abundant; from the careful overlap of the gills to the ridges in the ‘hammer’, denoting the variation in species.
