Piano Project Airport Terminal30th November - 13th February
I’m interested in colour, line and shape in the context of the landscapes that surround
us whether it’s urban or the natural environment. To reveal what maybe hidden and
strip back, to discover the multi-layered world that surrounds us. This kind of leads
me to become fascinated with mixing shapes and constructions with the playful use
of colour, texture and line. I also have a keen interest in illustration, graphic design and
drawing, especially birds.
The Guernsey Arts Commission would like to thank the
Arts Foundation Guernsey for funding the project and the Team at
Guernsey Airport for their help and support in realizing the initiative.
And of course Artist Chris Simcox for creating such a wonderful
piece of Art.
Guernsey Arts: presents the piano project. Earlier this year the GAC
organised an opportunity for local artists to put forward their ideas to design the
Artwork for a Piano to be placed at the Guernsey Airport Terminal. With a final
public vote, Artist Chris Simcox was chosen to recreate his concept on the Piano and
has produced an extraordinary Art work, which depicts a walk-through Guernsey
landscape from dawn to dusk. The painting is of a bright nature colourful a full of life.
The images on the piano creates a movement from one place to another in a fluid and
musical way. The piano is not only beautiful as a work of visual public art it also serves as a musical
instrument filling the space with sound and energy. The piano will be placed at the
airport for the public to see and musicians to have an opportunity to play. All around
the world there are beautiful pianos placed in public spaces, bringing a lively
atmosphere in the area. The Guernsey Airport is about to become one of those places
where Art and people come together.
