series I next I previous

Part of an on-going series of drawings made between North Greenwich & Woolwich. It's an extraordinary area, constantly in flux: new developments encroach eastward down river; the tide relentlessly reveals and obliterates river bed and detritus; industrial structures alternate between dereliction & those still moving vast quantities of aggregate from ship to land. 

I'd like each drawing to be a trace of the many moments in time which unfold around me as I draw, revealing the constant interactions between massive man-made &  natural forces.
