Best known for her large-scale outdoor commissions, Blumenfeld is passionate about bringing sculpture into public spaces.
Her numerous public commissions include a monumental marble sculpture called ‘Tempesta’ at The Lancasters overlooking Hyde Park, which was installed in 2012.
Since the inception of Canary Wharf’s cultural masterplan, visual arts has played an important role in the development and success of the 128-acre Estate.
Canary Wharf has one of the UK’s largest collections of public art, with more than 65 permanent works by over 50 world-renowned artists and craftsmen.
She studied at Columbia University, New York, followed by Oxford University.
She later completed a Ph D in Philosophy at Columbia in 1965.
In May 2016, Blumenfeld’s new bronze sculpture ‘Meridiana’ was installed in Holland Park as part of a series celebrating the work of female sculptors, while this summer will see Blumenfeld’s largest work to date permanently installed at Canary Wharf.
