London Bridges

Liam O'Farrell pulls together his paintings of railway bridges giving a distinct London flavour.

Covering the bridges at Waterloo East, Dalston Lane, Southwark Bridge Road and The Whitehart at Southwark, Liam's paintings show a tender love for the sometimes awkward structures, he says "In Inner London, the problem tends to be solved by overhead railways. These weave about in all directions and often chop buildings clear in two to reach their stations. Below, they tend to be supported by arches which are rented out to be nightclubs, lock ups, or garages where you can purchase guns, drugs, pit bull terriers and even the odd car."
