ARTful have installed ‘Arum Lilly’ by Beatrice Hoffman in the North reception at Berkely Square House, Bruton Street.
Beatrice was inspired by Georgia o’Keeffe, and this sculpture on the face of it represents a flower – as well as a potent feminine symbol.
Flowing lines describe a vessel gradually opening as it grows upwards – an image about the inside cave, the outside skin/surface, and the edge moving between the two.
This form makes Beatrice reflect about “feminine” qualities of holding, containing and receiving. Often falsely considered “passive”, these qualities are subtly active: allowing, selecting, responding, within the timescale and rhythms of nature.
Arum Lilly is on display until July 2015 in the North reception entrance for Berkeley Square House on Bruton Street.
