Richard Wright’s delicate and elusive artwork on the vast ceiling at the western ticket hall of the Elizabeth line station at Tottenham Court Road features an intricate, geometric gold-leaf pattern, hand gilded by the artist and a team of assistants.
“Gold has the immaterial quality of being absent and present at the same time. It appears and disappears, it is almost not there at all.” – Richard Wright
