The London Connection, 77 x 256 cm, Etching (Ed.A of 30)
This London Connection etching portrays the development of the modern metropolis. Split into three sections, the
left-handpanel represents the early 20th century, travel and links to North America. The middle section concentrates on the
lifeblood, the heartbeat of the metropolis based on Britain's imperial past. Everything in this section is for display - a false
paradise where the past is brought to life as a theme park. The right-hand panel represents the modern vision of the
metropolis and Britain's wider role in the contemporary world, now symbolised by it's links to Europe.
