Life Member Helaine Blumenfeld Canary Wharf commission

Canary Wharf Group has unveiled its latest permanent work of art commissioned especially for the Estate's new district, created by contemporary sculptor and Clare Hall Life Member, Helaine Blumenfeld OBE.

Fortuna, the impressive sculpture at five metres high, is situated in the award-winning and tranquil Jubilee Park and is Blumenfeld’s most ambitious work to date in a career that spans over 50 years. The work in patinated bronze is inspired by the eponymous Roman goddess of destiny and evokes the fullness and complexity of the human condition.

Her commission for the Canary Wharf Group coincides with a major exhibition of her new work at the Hignell Gallery in Mayfair, which presents a personal portrait of Blumenfeld’s career. Entitled Hard Beauty, the collection will be on view between 21 September and 27 November 2016.
