‘Stratford Olympic Park’ – monoprints

This series of monoprints began with the artist wanting to document the changing scenery over Stratford during the construction of the Olympic Park. Lynne took photographs of the construction site, from a vantage point on the roof of the old shopping centre, as it progressed from a pile of earth with the bones of the Olympic Stadium appearing and multiple cranes crowding the horizon, and onwards to the completion of the buildings we see today. These photographs were the starting point from which a hand painted screenprint layer was printed over a full colour monoprint, painted directly onto a blank silk screen and then pulled through the screen with clear medium. Each print is unique as each is hand painted and is therefore different from the others in the edition. This series of works have been exhibited at various exhibitions in the local area as well as at Bankside Gallery for their ‘London Lives’ exhibition.
