Not the feathered type either, but the industrial kind.
Coming from the Midlands, our industrial heritage has always been a fascination. I was born not far from where James Watt had his factory and my family research has uncovered just how many of my ancestors worked in the industries of Birmingham and the Black Country. I’m blaming them for this weird passion!!
And, you can see this in much of the art that I have been exploring: industrial landscapes, American Precisionism, Italian Futurism and our very own Vorticist movement.
Thanks to my arty chums on Twitter, I was able to have a mooch around depictions of cranes in art and here is a little selection. Am sure I’ll be adding more to this lot!!
