MOSAICS: PIECES OF A PUZZLE

10th November 2016: IT’S A WRAP

Coming up the escalator at Bethnal Green underground yesterday, I saw a poster advertising a piece of art that I have long been curious about.  It is called Wrapper and is by Jacqueline Poncelet.  It wraps Edgware Road Underground station and can be seen from the Marylebone flyover. I love it because to me it looks like a sampler of different ideas and thoughts that the artist has had and put into her artistic medium, much as in the same way an embroiderer would make a sampler.  Reading about it, Poncelet has drawn on the locality for her inspiration. It feels to me that she has gone much wider and that it is a homage to ceramic tiles from many different places.
