Following an invited competition, Shauna McMullan was commissioned to create an artwork for the Portman Estate in London.  The resulting artwork, Field Work is a carving of meadow grasses in the lower stone panels of the Portman Mews building's façade.  Records show that the Estate, which lies just to the north of Oxford Street, was largely farmland as late as the 1740s.  The artwork acts as a discrete reminder of the agricultural history of the area.


As the artist describes, ‘the work exists as a window or lens that allows the viewer a glimpse or fragment of what exists or has existed before’.
