Klee, master of becoming, persistently rejected perspective and the single viewpoint in order to introduce numerous visual ambiguities. Instead of seeing architecture as something static, in Revolving House (this is the detail of the painting which could also be read as a city) there is dynamic element into the conception of the houses, causing them to revolve around a centre, as if to imitate the rotation of a the earth. His architectures live and become, mirroring life itself, nature and the stars.
The Oxford University sponsors Public Art as part of the re-development of Radcliffe Quarter and below is Antoni Malinwski’s work which probably would be best viewed in a daylight (rather then at the opening evening when these pictures were taken) so to capture the reflective and refractive nature of the colours and mica used.
