One of a series of original wood engravings exploring the dynamic atmosphere and distinctive architecture of the London Underground. This piece depicts Holborn station: the viewer teetering precariously on the platform edge as a Piccadilly line train fast approaches.
In this series the artist carefully chooses unusual perspectives and angles, whilst keeping these often busy stations in an eerie, near-deserted state. In this way, the artist is encouraging us to take another look: to see the unfamiliar in the ordinary, and to rediscover and better appreciate these incredible subterranean man-made caverns.
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.
