Original, hand-made wood engraving. A rat’s-eye view of Clapham North tube station on the Northern line of the London Underground. Exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015.
Clapham North is one of only two stations on the Northern line to retain a central island platform. This view shows a stationary train on the southbound side of the platform, with the end of a painted ‘MIND THE GAP’ warning in the foreground.
Wood engraving is a form of fine art printmaking. The artist uses specialised tools to create the image in relief (and reverse) on the end grain of a block of hardwood – usually boxwood – by removing the ‘white’ parts of the image. This technique is painstaking and highly technical, and allows for the creation of exquisitely detailed works. Rebecca’s wood engravings have been exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, with the Society of Wood Engravers, and in galleries across the world from Japan to the USA.
