Tanks Beneath the Tate

Under the Tate No 1  43" x 54" Oil on canvas. 1999
I'm travelling to London today and am looking forward to visiting the Tate Modern, as I do on every trip. This time the old underground oil tanks will be open and I'm looking forward to seeing them re-incarnated as performance and installation spaces. 

In the late nineties I saw some photographs of the tank interiors which were taken when the old power station was being surveyed for re-use. I was inspired to do these paintings.
