Alison Wilding and Adam Kershaw's Still Water, the National Memorial to Britsih Victims of Overseas Terrorism, in included in the Guardian's list of 75 great artworks to see across the UK. Critics have chose the most important paintings, installations and sculptures to see this summer. 

Art critic Skye Sherwin writes of the public commission: 
Wilding’s signature diamond lozenge forms quietly invert the thrusting tendency of memorial cenotaphs. Like mountains emerging from a pool of concrete, its surface mimics water’s movement. Between solidity and liquid, it suggests a transformative cycle. 

Still Water is located in the UK's National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.
