Limited edition print by Gail Brodholt.
Size: 30 x 30cm
Gail Brodholt is a leading painter and linocut printmaker of contemporary urban landscape. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE) and her work is permanently on show at the society's gallery, Bankside (next to Tate Modern). She works full-time from her studio in South London. She depicts London and especially its transport network with great technical accomplishment.
Much of her work depicts the London transport network and the journeys made across the city on tubes and trains. Her work is concerned with journeys, both actual and temporal, providing an outsider's narrative on present day London which is tinged with a certain nostalgia for the railways and the tube trains. Human activity is there but often concealed from sight, the people anonymous. Often, only the setting alludes to the possible presence of people within the scene.
Gail's work has a technical, draughtsmen-like quality, yet underneath there is always a strong element of emotion.
