Easington Colliery, study 1 1993
1993, Pastel 700 framed
57 x 47 cm

The first of a body of drawings and paintings responding to the closure of Easington Colliery, the last deep mine in County Durham, in 1993. Through friends made in the area I managed to get permission to access the colliery on a regular basis from just before its closure to the complete clearing of the site in 1994. This is the view north from the coal wash building towards the coal storage heap made on location.
