Battersea Power Station

I took part in the Developing Landscape project bringing together artists, interested in exploring and painting the changing landscapes of South West London.

This view of the power station offered a fitting contrast between the old and the new. I included the South West service train that until recently I had taken as part of my daily commute to working in Sutton. Over this time I saw the glass buildings surrounding the power station emerge with their unimaginative straight lines,  offering no apparent compliment to the power station other than to frame it.

I love the way the power station and the materials used to build it so many years ago were reflecting the mid-day sun with a honey warmth and in a way the surrounding stark glass could only wish for.

The spirit of the garden. The Green Man

The Green Man is believed to be the spirit of the garden and symbolises life cycle, death and re-birth.
He is a Pagan symbol ushering in the Spring and the renewal of luscious vegetation after the long winter.

This Isn’t Sustainable

The earth is 4.6 billion years old.
If we scale that to 46 years, we have been here for 4 hours, and our industrial revolution began 1 minute ago.
In that time we have destroyed over 50% of the worlds forests.
This isn’t sustainable.

Democratic Right To Peaceful Protest

The Democratic Right to Peaceful Protest.

‘The anti-protest bill risks making the UK like Putin’s Russia’ David Blunkett.

Extinction Rebellion Red Brigade.

The proposed ‘Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill’ states, “the bill will…strengthen police powers to tackle non violent protests that have significant disruptive effect on the public or on access to parliament”.
