Description

Cafe by Janet Brooke is a mono and screen print that captures the passing of time.  This image forms part of the exhibition of Janet Brookes complex screen prints produced between 1985 to 2000.  The exhibition is titled The Way We Were and takes place at Orso Major Gallery, 19 Lower Marsh, SE1 7RJ

In the case of the shop fronts, the build up of signage, paint, labels and notices are applied one on top of another, echoing the ever changing nature of London in particular.

In this print called Cafe by Janet Brooke, you can see the many planes that make up the image, the space invaders machine inside the cafe that dates the interior as well as the route master bus seen in the reflection in the window.  It is a complicated screen print that builds layers upon layers

Brooke was inspired to capture these neglected aspects of our urban environment, recognising that soon they would be gone, and the memory of them would fade much like the paint on the fascia.
