The proposal for Cloud Study, hand drawn on a scrap of paper

I spoke with Alys Williams of Vitrine Gallery and artist Charlie Godet Thomas about his new work Cloud Study, commissioned by Sculpture At, and currently installed in Bermondsey Square, London.

I began to think about some of the conventional qualities that public sculpture often adheres to and the way in which they could be negated. I was keen for an imposing quality to to be substituted for quietness, heroism for the everyday, stillness for function, sternness for humour and vulnerability in the place of grandstanding.
