‘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.”
Alexandra Blum was recently awarded an Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial Award and the David Gluck Memorial Bursary for drawing. Solo shows include ‘Archaeology of Urban Time: Drawing Dalston’ at the Geffrye Museum, London, 2011-12. Her work can currently be seen at Hackney Museum, London and has been selected for the forthcoming Sunday Times Watercolour exhibition, Mall Galleries, London, 16 – 21 September 2013.
