The Meeting Place by Paul Day
Day studied at art schools in the UK at Colchester and Dartington, and completed his training at Cheltenham in 1991. He now lives in a village near Dijon, France, with his French wife, Catherine. Their Anglo-French relationship is an explicit and repeated theme in his works.
The Meeting Place, which is modelled on an embrace between Paul and Catherine, stands as a metaphor for St Pancras’s role as the terminus of the rail link between England and France.
In 2008 a high-relief frieze was added to the base of the Meeting Place sculpture as part of refurbishments at St Pancras, featuring images from the history of the Tube and train: people queuing on platforms or travelling in carriages; soldiers departing for war and returning injured, and repair works following the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
