  • About the artwork

    The Dive by Janet Brooke is a mono and screen print that presents the industrial Gas Works alongside the domestic. This image formed part of the exhibition of Janet Brookes complex screen prints produced between 1985 to 2000. The exhibition titled The Way We Were took place at Orso Major Gallery, 19 Lower Marsh, SE1 7RJ

    Of this print called The Dive by Janet Brooke, the artist says “Another early print from 1980, close to where I lived in Ropery Street, a pub on the corner of Burdett Road and Hamlets Way, long since turned into flats. Even then you couldn’t tell what it was called from the worn out sign … it was actually The Crystal Tavern … inside full of mirrors, faded red velvet and ancient barmaids with back-combed hair.”

    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.
