View Subterranea: Paddington

Wood engraving,

Limited number of artist's proofs available; main edition now sold out

As shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2019

One of an ongoing series of original wood engravings exploring the unique atmosphere and architecture of London's Tube stations via light and dark, texture and space. By choosing unusual angles and viewpoints - and by removing almost all human presence - my aim is to reveal the beauty of these underground tunnels in a way that even regular commuters might not recognise.

In this vertiginous view, a lone figure waits on the sweeping, deserted platform at Paddington. But closer inspection may reveal other forms, and the tension and claustrophobia build.
