Lorraine Gill Galleries - The Clapham Road Series
Ferris WheelOpposite my old studio on Clapham Rd was an array of tower blocks - council houses.
Sometimes a fire would break-out on a fourth floor where some poor person had; had enough, I would visit the launderette situated underneath one of the blocks and hear of the frustrations; violence; scams; and interrelationships of people jammed together where few trees grew.
My symbol of life, Battersea Park, offered me the image of the Ferris wheel as a comment on this situation, whereas words failed.
Once again people confined; little umbrellas as protection from life on a relentless circle; sometimes up; sometimes down.
