Work IV

Jane Stobart

Framed £220

Edition of 15 (8 available)



For many years my work has been inspired by a variety of industrial locations. I have gained access to draw in some amazing places that have taken me behind the closed doors of industry, where the woman in the street is not usually admitted. These have included a tube train

maintenance depot, sewage pumping stations, construction sites, the Bankside Power Station, the National Grid and an extensive period spent at the bell foundry in Whitechapel, London. What began as an interest in industrial spaces, gradually focused upon the people that work in them.


I mainly use the processes of etching, aquatint and woodcut and all of my prints are developed from the hundreds of drawings that I have made at the various sites.
