London Orientations Paintings

Stephen Carter

By 2014, without really looking for it – I find several more scattered locations in London that become the focus for new work. If I reflect on what links these otherwise diverse subjects, I can see that they all in various ways represent processes of change. All around in London it seems that earlier forms of modernism are being torn down to be replaced by newer versions (e.g. ‘Handyside Street Northwest’). This is towards the area just north of Kings Cross and St Pancras railway stations, where major redevelopment projects are underway.
