Cedric Christie and Nancy Fouts were among the artists invited to re-imagine the iconic Centrepoint signage for a charity auction on 24 June.
“The ‘C’ is crushed steel panels and the colours, blue and red, chose me more than I chose them, in the way that colour always does. Colour says something to you. It gives you an answer or a question. These colours said, ‘This is it. Leave me alone.’”
- Cedric Christie theauctioncollective.com/auctions/the-centre-point-letters/cedric-christie-c/
“When the letter arrived, it was so heavy it took three men to bring it into my garden. My thought was to make it into sailor’s beadwork, so I removed the electrics and Perspex, painted the metal to make it look like wood and filled the inside with foam. I used whatever I found in the studio to adorn it. It tickled me to decorate something so gigantic with tiny beads and trinkets.”
