Garden Front – Raf Fulcher 1977


You are never far from a work of art in Newcastle and this continues in Jesmond. After alighting from the Metro, ascend the stairs and you’ll notice an intriguing sculpture behind some glass panels. This is by RAF Fulcher and entitled Garden Front, an was developed using the language of 18th century garden design. A panel on a nearby wall will give you more information about it.  Passengers emerging from Jesmond Metro Station, could be forgiven for thinking that this is an old relic of a bygone age. In fact this sculpture, Garden Front, by Raf Fulcher was created to contrast with the modern architecture of the station.
