All work submitted for the 'Industry' #drawonhalton challenge
Maria Tarn (originally created for the 'Smell' prompt):
For our 'Industry' prompt for #drawonhalton Local Artist John Bond was inspired to create this on the subject of industry. Inspired by drone footage of the Weston Point chemical works.
It is a Gelli plate and linoprint.
Another offering from Local Artist John Bond for this weeks #drawonhalton on the subject of industry. Well not really industry because science and technology is increasingly taking over from the old industries of this area of chemical production, tanning, metal working and ship building. At the centre of this thrust into new technologies is Daresbury Science Park. This is a reduction linoprint.
