About this work of Art
Arrival Alone – King’Cross St Pancras Station
38 x 25 cm
Edition of 150
signed by the artist on lower right corner
King’s Cross St Pancras station – a place of many people and always busy, apart from in this print. Sometimes we have to travel alone, you are on a mission and only you can do it, no room for others. There is a great romance to travel and movement and never more so than when travelling solo, anything can happen in the big city…
John Duffin is a painter and printmaker whose work is based on the modern environments of cities and towns, creating dynamic, cinematic images of contemporary urban life. His unique images of architecture, lighting and figures have been greatly praised and awarded, recently receiving The Most Outstanding Print Award from Sir peter Blake, he has a distinctive artistic voice and has much to say in his work about contemporary life in all of it’s manifestations. His work is in the tradition of LS Lowry in Britain and Edward Hopper in America and like these artists he creates unique views of contemporary urban life, a combination of his ability as a draughtsman, his imagination and his personal use of perspective and colour. He makes drawings and watercolours in front of his chosen subject and takes these sketches back to his London studio where he creates from them his own imaginative interpretation of the site, recreating the place anew via his own imagination. His work is redolent with influences from cinema, graphic novels and the history of figurative painting, but from this comes a vision that is his alone.
