  • 'Block 7' 66.5 x 133cm, Acrylic on Board, 2022

    An original painting by Elliott Packham, made using acrylic paint and finished in a protective satin varnish. This painting is based on a high-rise building in the north of Munich, Germany, which contains 801 apartments and was originally built from 1969 to 1971.


    The painting depicts the building’s concrete frame which partially shelters the rest of the façade from the low, early morning sun. The dark blue tinted windows repeat almost endlessly, as well as gradually becoming smaller and more covered up by the concrete frame as the building gets further away from the viewer. A column juts out of the composition in the centre, dividing the two sets of windows and casting a shadow immediately to the right.


    Perspective plays a key role in the composition, with the building itself drawing the viewers eyes from right to left as it gets further away. However, this is counteracted by the shadows on the vertical parts of the concrete frame, which pull the eye in the opposite direction. In contrast to some of Elliott’s other work, there isn’t a specific focal point for the eye to rest on. This is intended to keep the viewers eyes moving around the painting, getting lost in the maze of lines, angles and shapes.
