Metro support Deanna Jackson on The "Olympic Timeline" Project

06 July 2012
With the Olympics fast approaching we have had some wonderful Olympic related work coming into the lab. This project by artist Deanna Jackson is particularly interesting as it tracks the progress of the Olympic site as it transformed from the Hackney marshes it once was to the heights of the Olympic park.

Deanna explains “In the winter of 2008 whilst on a walk along the canal sides of east London I noticed the beginnings of the site clearance for the Olympic games. It was visually dynamic and clear that this would have a major impact on the future structure of London.”

Deanna started with her first piece in January 2009 and has revisited the same site in the same position every 8 weeks until late 2011. The resulting work is a true testament to her dedication to this project. Wax resist/ink sketches were made in situ in order to capture the ‘space’ within which the buildings emerge whilst the larger pieces are made by collaging the sketches on canvas in the studio. Various media are used to complete the image to achieve the aim of conveying the excitement of the building process.
Metro has worked with Deanna producing a series of C-type prints mounted on aluminium which were used in her exhibition at the Hackney Museum earlier this year and will also be at a one-off exhibition at Cannon Bridge House, 25 Dowgate Hill, London EC4R 2YA on Thursday 12th, July along with her original artwork.
