Situated on a former no mans land between Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees the Tees Barrage on the river Tees is a public space with water sports, picnic and play areas, riverside walks and nature reserves. It is a quiet haven in the centre of the busy urban and industrial sprawl of Teesside. This work shows how I interact with such an environment and indeed with the world around me in general by portraying the place as I see and experience it. With themes such as solitude and isolation I experience the calm and quiet stillness of such public spaces without the people around that they were designed for.
