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.
