Apax World Headquarters

Jermyn Street, London


Brian Clarke's architectural installation for Apax Partners Partners’ headquarters in Jermyn Street, London was completed at the end of November 2007. The work for their lobby includes a back-lit stained glass screen and a large multi-panel work on canvas. The multi-panel oil painting is titled “Hovering There” and is based on the shimmering colour of an English Bluebell wood in May. The glass, like the painting, is about “hovering colour”, points of light like will o’ the wisp among foliage.
"Hovering There", 2007, oil on canvas, 330 x 360 cm. The stained glass, in two sections: 270 x 660 cm and 270 x 840 cm.
