In Anticipation by James Burke
Having just unveiled his brand new public art installation In Anticipation in the heart of Shoreditch, Acrylicize Founder and Creative Director James Burke has received lots of attention from the press – including BBC News, Evening Standard, and Made in Shoreditch – for this towering ultra-marine blue steel sculpture. See the full project here.
Inspired by the limitless possibilities of our next thought, move and action, the towering ultra-marine blue steel sculpture boldly nods to the non-conformist creative sentiment so deeply ingrained within the cultural identity of Shoreditch. Echoing a seemingly playful hand drawn sketch, the waiting figure appears to have descended from its plinth and is perched against it. Leaning forward expectantly with its head looking back towards the high street, this piece captures themes of suspense, vulnerability, optimism and possibility.
