Canning Town Platform

‘Canning Town Station Platform’ 2013 125 x 156 cms, oil on canvas.

The painting is based on a drawing I made in 2006, the Station Platform at Canning Town DLR gives a great view across the loop of water which is part of the lower reaches of Bow Creek. further downstream the river Lea joins the Thames at Trinity Buoy Wharf. The area of land sandwiched in the middle opposite the station was once covered with medium sized industrial businesses. In 2006-7 the land was cleared ready for re-development, however the economic environment changed around that time and the land still remains largely empty.
