Drawing on Composite Etching 2021
90 x 96 cm on Somerset Satin White 300g
The urban development has and continues to obscure the view of London that I recognise, in the continuation of the amelioration process. In these prints I have overlaid the motif of the London Plane, so symbolic of the city, on a composite etching of hi-rise construction.

The recent Amelioration Series take physical subjects as their basis, to represent the human presence and it’s legacy. These prints focus on the impact of people, in their quest to make an improved society and the conflict between urban development and its ever-increasing effect on the environment. Although conscious of the footprint of human impact on the ground I am constantly aware of looking upwards, a neglected activity with our increasing fixation with our phones for direction and answers. The ever-increasing development above our eyeline, that which occurs outside of our consciousness but which greatly impacts our wellbeing and ultimately our future existence.
