201 - BLYTH POWER STATION - DAVE EDWARDS - INK - 1995 by 


THIS IS NOT A RECENT DRAWING

FEATURED BY THE WHICH WAY GROUP – 11th May 2011

QUESTION: is anything too mundane to become art?

ANSWER: In my opinion art can be made from anything, however mundane.

Here is an ink drawing I made of our local power station sixteen years ago. I had prints made of it and sold a fair amount in local shops. Since then, the power station has been demolished, so I guess this is now a historical document :).

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    I remember having a trip around this power station shortly before it was demolished. We took my son Richard who had chicken pox in its early stages, none of us were aware of it at the time just the day after. It was a north east coast monument and it kept the lights on, but it burnt a huge quantity of coal per day and produced lots of carbon.

    Anyway, the drawing is a very good representation of the power station as I remember it. I love the cloudy sky too and the way the scene looks grey and dirty – just how I remember it. Great piece of work Dave.

  • Thanks Harry. I remember the banner headlines in the Journal -

    “A small boy is thought to be responsible for the mysterious outbreak of chicken pox which infected all the workers of Cambois Power Station and resulted in its closure and in plans for future demolition” :-)

    That’ll be us then. :-)

    Now you mention it, that story is familiar, and it broke a few days after out visit (a week or so) and they say chicken pox is most contagious before you really know you’ve got it!

    “Just slap on the cuffs, I’ll come quietly officer” ;-(

  • Our dry senses of humour will have people wondering :)
