Collection of Hartlepool Gray Art Gallery. BBC Your Paintings website. A representation from drawings of the changing West Dock. I was seriously into industrial dereliction which was all over the North East during the 90s. I wanted to capture a moment just prior to redevelopment wiping out the memory. I like these pockets of inactive industrial land where memories of past human activity can still be imagined but where Nature is returning. The layers of paper and paint are a visual equivalent to this process of revealing and obscuring that time and human activity does to land.0
