A Pace Or Two Ahead Of Us, 2012

Hand painted glass, fire safety glass

Town Hall Artworks Phase II, curated by ArtsAdmin

Fragments of hand-painted glass on six door panels along the second floor corridor of the Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green. The feeling of wandering the Hotel alone, with snippets of people all around. Plus a remembered line from Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited – 

“Perhaps all our loves are merely hints and symbols; a hill of many invisible crests; doors that open as in a dream to reveal only a further stretch of carpet and another door… each straining through and beyond the other, snatching a glimpse now and then of the shadow which turns the corner always a pace or two ahead of us.”
