Richard Kindersley

Abstract

 

Lead

1975

Location: Exterior wall of Northcote House above the student entrance, Streatham Campus

A stark, abstract sculpture, in a uniform, dramatic grey, this relief of curves and circles symbolises modernity, technology and communication. It was commissioned with relevance to the administrative function of Northcote House.

On the left of the main doorway, and above the student entrance to the extension of the building, you will see Richard Kindersley’s stark abstract sculpture in a uniform, dramatic grey.  The surface is embellished with a composition of curves and circles conjuring up a variety of human and totemic images.

Richard Kindersley studied lettering and sculpture at Cambridge School of Art and in his Father’s workshop. In 1970 he set up his own studio in London where he specialises in architectural lettering and sculpture.
