Improve your hotel room

Met Leon Chew today.  He often likes to play with geometric forms and scale in normal environments (and sometimes not so normal; he likes a black beach) using the simplest of materials like bits of perspex (which he says he always has in his suitcase) or tinfoil, as in the work shown above.  He calls this series Sculpture for Hotels.  I love that a chambermaid would have discovered Leon's art in situ once he'd checked out and wonder if they'd have appreciated it as much as I do. He also showed me some fantastic shots of flowers which reminded me of a giant Anish Kapoor sculpture.  Beautiful stuff. Leon Chew
