Sculpturesite Gallery artist John Atkin, has been selected from 2,600 applicants to create a new sculpture for the major exhibition at Olympic Park, Beijing later this year. His initial designs received an ‘outstanding award’ from the judging panel.
The public art exhibition launches in May 2008 and is based on the 2008 Olympic theme of "One World, One Dream." John’s sculpture allows people to walk through the spaces between each element of the sculpture. The two identical, shapes, based on garment template contour patterns, are cut from the same veined block, turned inward on each other.
