Intersection sculpture installed in Winchester

The 2.7m high bronze and steel sculpture Intersection has just been installed in Winchester’s George’s Street. Intersection marks the ancient and current history of the site - It’s flying buttress references the long demolished church of St. Ruan, while the post and beam architecture of the 1960s Casson Block is represented in the crossing steel framework. Standing on the site of the Roman middle Brooks - part of the concealed ancient Itchen Marshes drainage scheme - the water context is referenced in the texture and Patina of the work.
