‘Wish’, Nigel Ellis
HS Projects was appointed by Gazeley Properties to deliver a section 106 public art commission to act as a marker for their new business park in Crayford, Kent.
In close collaboration with the developers, architects Higgs Young and Bexley Council we developed the project and artist brief for a site specific, low maintenance, robust sculpture that retained highway visibility.
Following a selection process, Nigel Ellis was commissioned for his response to the physicality of the site and the business of Optima Park, a business and warehouse distribution park. The simplicity and uncluttered clean lines of ‘Wish’, Ellis’s 4 meter high, powder coated steel sculpture, relates well to the architecture and functionality of the site.
HS Projects commissioned ‘Wish’ on behalf of Gazeley Properties for Optima Park, Crayford, Kent in 2004.
