View Subterranea 10: Waterloo
One of a series of original wood engravings exploring the dynamic atmosphere and distinctive architecture of the London Underground.
This piece depicts one of the Bakerloo line platforms at Waterloo station - showing the distinctive piano-key tiling and dramatic sweep of the curved tunnel. This is the busiest Tube station in London, but in this fleeting moment the platform is almost deserted.
As a former Tube commuter myself, I know that - packed full of busy travellers every day - the Underground can very easily be taken for granted. By choosing unusual angles and perspectives of near-deserted stations, my aim in this series of artworks is to help the viewer to rediscover and better appreciate these incredible subterranean man-made structures.
