Gail Brodholt usually finds her inspiration on a journeys. That reminds me about Ferrocarili project. But Gail depicts her perception of well known places, instead of entering a new environment. Despite the fact that her parents are immigrants, she was born in London. So the london underground and urban landscapes are very familiar and to her. There are often people on her prints but they are not the main characters. You see them as a part of environment.
I found her work printed as postcard in a bookshop. The most exiting fact for me about it was the fact that it looks like a painting. Divers colour pallet and complicated shapes and plenty of details creates this effect.
