‘Panoramic’ by Alexandra Blum

“I love the panoramas of London. I’ve spent a lot of time climbing and drawing from scaffolding, as artist in residence on the Dalston Square construction site in Hackney, east London, where the encompassing sense of space was incredible.‘Panoramic’ was made referring to drawings made at the top of the scaffolding, 200 metres up.”
