Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This work shows the Railway and the Wearmouth bridges of my home city of Sunderland, in the North-East of England. The work shows these local landmarks from the unusual perspective of down below looking up. I often fish along the River Wear from this spot, so this viewpoint is a familiar one. There is something very fascinating about these strong man-made structures contrasted against the natural elements too, which I hope this work captures to a degree.

'Grey, crystal skies, a strange disposition of bridges...' - 'The Bridges' - Arthur Rimbaud.
