The Shard Reflects – Peter and John Cast to the Other side?
A passing encounter with a scene on the South Bank of the Thames, generated a story, of biblical origin. I am not very comfortable in the city and make up stories, or narratives from what I encounter. The massive phallus structure of London’s tallest building reflected in the window of a bar. Two men engrossed in conversation at the door, a masculine sky-line, the money of the city, like Peter and John, contemplating crossing / casting to the other side of the Thames? Anonymously encountered, Artist as spectator, of a time and place that led to a connection with a bible story; reflection of a different place and time.
