Vauxhall Sky Gardens, Nine Elms

Vauxhall Sky Gardens, Nine Elms

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

As I was finishing my painting of the Vauxhall Sky Garden construction, I began to see some similarities to a Dr Who Dalek so I added a Dalek Head styled penthouse to the top.

My Dalek style building in Exterminate! mode represents the disappointment I feel at another glass cylindrical tower appearing on London’s horizon when there is one already a few blocks away. I’m not sure London is realising it’s full potential in applying creativity to the responsibility we have in building the environment and city landscape for many future generations to enjoy.
