Lucinda Rogers In Tottenham

Under a Mercedes

Contributing Artist Lucinda Rogers draws on location, making her atmospheric detailed pictures with ink, crayon and watercolour, to capture the drama of workplaces and record these parts of London that are seldom seen except by those who are employed there.

She has accumulated a portfolio of large bravura drawings – from which these pictures are selected – recording the workshops, yards and factories of the trading, repair and small manufacturing companies in Peacock Estate, White Hart Lane, Tottenham, currently threatened by redevelopment as part of Haringey Council’s programme of  “restructuring the borough’s employment land portfolio.” Just as in the East End, these plans put active businesses at risk and jeopardise local jobs for the sake of high-density housing developments – a short-sighted policy that has been summarised as, “London is eating itself.”

Lucinda Rogers’ exhibition entitled EMPLOYMENT LAND PORTFOLIO opens today at Heyne Tillett Steel, 
4 Pear Tree Court, Clerkenwell, EC1R 0DS and runs for one week until next Sunday 7th June, as part of London Festival of Architecture.

    I’m a practising artist, and I must say Lucinda’s draughtsmanship and style of expression is admirable. The subject matter, too, is presented in a fresh, original way that really gives a feeling of discovery. I wish Lucinda every success in her work.

    Glorious drawings, so full of life. I really find them astonishingly skilful and rich and moving. I don’t know how you produce so much work of such high quality, Lucinda.
