BrickingIt commission

Following on from the ‘Bricking It’ exhibition and auction which took place in March to raise funds for the Creative Hub at Resort, Kate Harrison successfully secured a commission request from Tess Acheson at Bearded Kitten. Four bricks were required in total, to form one piece for the head office of The Collective, a young and vibrant property development company based in Bedford Square, London.

The brief was open, providing a great opportunity for Kate to continue her exploration of all things miniature and to use her imagination for the works inspired by everyday life. Scenes were created, from a busy city environment with road works, a policemen watching skateboarders, businessmen and women and a busker; to a fun lido complete with resin pool, diving board and ice cream seller and a more calming beach to end. Bedford Square was also captured, including replica plane and pine trees, railing, lamp posts and a double postbox all present in reality.

Kate developed a connection with the characters portrayed, each forming a relationship with another character or with something else happening within the scene.

‘It was a challenging and fun piece to create and has given me food for thought for my future shows, added a 3D element to what I do. I never thought tweezers, PVA and my glasses would get so much use in such a small space of time or that my love for small things would become work I create’.
