There Is Beauty In Dilapidation


1 in stock

This work, capped by a deep slash of pure Cerulean Blue, shows the beauty that can be found in derelict buildings long past their point of service. This building is a former engineering shed at Eva Brothers in Openshaw, East Manchester in 2020.  Eva Brothers were forge-masters, established at the end of the 19th century. It was rumoured that the con rods for the Titanic’s engines were forged here. The thud of the steam hammers was a constant soundtrack for the population of Gorton and Higher Openshaw for decades. The composition of this painting relies on the rule of thirds. with light tones, and illustrative detail implied and kept to a minimum, to create an almost abstract expressionist  canvas.
