Etchings from Brutalist Thamesmead

A series of hand drawn etchings based on my observational sketches of Thamesmead. This was a brutalist London suburb created in the late 1960s, by the GLC. It went into decline after being used as the set for Kubrick’s ‘A Clockwork Orange,’ and now exists as a kind of monument to a failed utopia. The soft ground etching techniques, using shades of grey, is echoed in the neglected estate.
