Drawing cube on show at Canary Wharf—if you believe what you see

A 10ft-high ‘cube’ sculpture is the latest work to be installed at Canary Wharf’s prestigious public art collection.

The blue ‘Drawing Cube’ sculpture by Suresh Dutt has gone up in Montgomery Square for the next six months.

Suresh won the ‘First@108’ competition run by the Royal British Society of Sculptors, which provides an up-and-coming sculptor each year with a �10,000 grant and prominent public display space.

“We subconsciously construct a space for every object we view,” Suresh explains. “This space is an area in which perceptions, thoughts and phenomena can emerge.

“Looking at it raises questions about what is real, the reliability of our perceptions and the relationship between our perceptions and the real world.”
