Canary Wharf Worms Eye View by Janet Brooke
Image size 26 x 20cm
This linocut print is taken from the series titled 36 Views of Canary Wharf, a play on the title ’36 views of Mount Fuji’ by Hokusai.
Produced in 2001, Janet says of the print Canary Wharf Worms Eye View
“Laying on the grass and looking up at the blocks surrounding Canada Square with Canary Wharf to the left. The little plane coming in to land at City Airport just happened to be there ….. this print was made before 9/11 …… if it had been later I might have thought twice about the inclusion of such an obvious symbol.”
