Politics in Print

I’ve just completed some new work for a commission from Devon Records Office and Double Elephant Print Workshop in Exeter.  This will be exhibited on 04 &  05 September at the XCentre, Exeter.  My work was inspired by the fact that there are over a hundred disused stations and more than a dozen lost railway lines in Devon.  Like Flanders and Swann in their song Slow Train, I was interested in what ‘passed out of our lives’ following the controversial ‘Beeching Bombshell’ of the 1960s and 70s that cut a third of the rail network in the UK.  Numerous rural branch lines were closed and this coincided with a significant growth in road traffic levels.
