So many reminders of the Industrial Revolution and it's impact on my local environment exist around my home in West Yorkshire, not least the old canal-side buildings. The appropriately named Canal Company Warehouse is one of my favourites. In a very neglected state, it remains an interesting and striking structure.
I love the patterns and shapes of the patches of corrugated iron and the rusting skeletal structure. Initially I wasn't sure whether to include the chain link fence but once cut and printed I was swayed. It seems to create a depth to the print, leading the eye in and out. and the twisted form of the creates a fluid contrast against the starker lines of the building.
Actually, I really like the chain link fencing.
