This piece is part of a series of cityscapes exploring narratives around human emotional or social constructs – whether that be a reaction against physical objects or structures, or something entirely imagined. This piece explores the energy and emotion of city life, specifically London, and how our emotional connection to the spaces we inhabit and the experiences we have within cities can be superimposed onto buildings and structures, which become both the scaffold for experience but also remote and removed bystanders in the scenes.

This piece uses a very restrictive modern colour palette but in more lurid, industrial backdrop of colours to represent the history of London Bridge (its the stench and fumes from its tanneries and breweries, old operating theatre, hospitals, market places, human activity and life etc). However, in this piece, the Shard is bold and blue – dominating the scene while not managing to eclipse its more murky past.
