‘Three Mills’ 2013, oil on canvas, 97 x 97 cms.
The painting was part of a series of fifteen works hanging at Queen Mary University as part of a Water City Festival event in February 2013. The painting is based on a drawing of Three Mills that are former working mills on the River Lea in the East End of London, one of London’s oldest extant industrial centres. The largest and most powerful of the four remaining tidal mills is possibly the largest tidal mill in the world. It is mainly accessed by a bridge over the Limehouse Cut and River Lea.
