View Subterranea 11: Mile End

Wood engraving,

One of a series of original wood engravings exploring the dynamic atmosphere and distinctive architecture of the London Underground.

In this piece, we look across the platforms at Mile End, between the distinctive square pillars which interrupt and frame fleeting vignettes of subterranean life.

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.
