Cartier Circle

Among the art scattered around Canary Wharf is a relatively new addition at the east entrance. The focal point of a landscaping project completed last year is this sculpture of 17 bronze posts. When I saw it a few weeks ago, it reflected both the spring sunlight and the vertical lines of the development behind.

The press release doesn't contain any mention of the artist's name. Is this an accidental omission, or are these shining posts considered more 'decoration' than 'art'?

We do so agree, this looks particularly effective in the light of a spring morning.

Until quite recently we had a flat directly opposite Canary Wharf which, viewed across the Thames, always appeared to us as a sculpture in its own right. At night it was quite Manhattanesque.

Lovely! I'm further away from Canary Wharf, but always enjoy seeing it from the top of my road on the way home.
