as seen at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London
Internationally renowned artists Monica Bonvinci designed three 9m tall letters forming the word RUN out of glass and stainless steel as a flagship artwork for the Park. In daylight, the letters act as a mirror for visitors and their surroundings, at night the letters glow with reflective internal LED lighting.
Bonvinci’s inspiration for the work came from musical references such as ‘Running Dry’ by Neil Young and the Velvet Underground song ‘Run Run Run’, which have also influenced her previous work. Inspired by the many uses of the Park, it was a natural choice to return to the word ‘run’ for this permanent work.

Rashid Johnson, What Goes Up, 2014, burned red oak flooring, spray enamel, black soap, wax, 96.5 x 120.5 x 3 inches (245.1 x 306.1 x 7.6 cm)
Rashid Johnson has become known for his ability to engage both the physical and cultural ramifications of his chosen materials. Beginning with early work in conceptual photography, and an abiding interest in the African American intellectual elite, he has gradually broadened the scope of his practice, creating reliquary-like objects, installations, and wall-based works that increasingly take on established legacies of painting.
Jonas Wood, Pink Plant with Shadow #1, 2014, oil and acrylic on canvas,
120 1/4 x 60 x 1 3/4 inches (305.4 x 152.4 x 4.4 cm)
Though contemporary life is at the center of Wood’s work, it is useful to locate the historical lineages that contextualize it among competing brands of figuration. Concentration on domestic interiors and everyday life, combined with acute attention toward patterning and color, invariably recall French Post-Impressionist painting and its modernist evolution in the work of Matisse. However, there is also an American brand of modernist painting, one that synthesizes cubism with the cultural landscape specific to this country, that comes to mind when considering Wood’s approach to composition.
