Construction Landscapes

2017 – 2019

Every week I would go to construction sites across London and paint what I saw from cranes in the middle of the developments, most notably at Battersea Power Station.  At the heart of this work is an intrigue in the short glimpses of the bones beneath the environments we come to know, which hold the city together yet are so often taken for granted. The work relates to my reading into Martin Heidegger, specifically in the relationship between matter and meaning.

The people I met on these sites are integral to this work and I would like to thank everyone for making me feel so welcome and for explaining to me how things worked and how the sites functioned. A special thanks to Solomon and Jeff who made my visits full of singing and laughing, Ryan for the many beers, and Marius for the tickets to cheer him on at a boxing tournament.
