painters Tubes magazine

In this issue – Tubes are delighted to publish the excellent article, “Hieronymus Bosch, sweet dreams?”  by Artist and Tubes writer Gregory Evans.  Tubes editor Denis Taylor’s essay “creating with pixels or pigments…what’s the difference?” featuring artists who incorporate digital painting into their discipline. Edward Taylor Sawyer,  Howard Brink, Hans Reefman  and Yehan Wang 

Tubes introduce readers to artist Nouiri Mohamed with art in the style inspired the ‘masters’ of 20th century art and yet ensures his own hand is unique and evident in the art he creates. painters Tubes are pleased to publish an update report of the huge ongoing project “Fiddlers Ferry.” which is a photographic and a painting endeavour taken on by Shaun Smyth and Lee Harrison. Fiddlers Ferry in one of the last major Power Stations in the UK that is run by coal fired turbines. It’s decommission is part of the UK Government  determined task to eliminate carbon emissions over the next few decades.

PRINT COPIES ARE AVAILABLE – CLICK HERE TO ORDER – ORDERS MUST BE PLACED BEFORE 15th MARCH 2020

End game for Fiddlers Ferry

Shaun Smyth, painter and Lee Harrison, photographer, have been documenting the Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. The concept is to show the complex machinery, building and the people of the power plant, provided the power that drove a 20th century industrial Britain.

Lee Harrison Photographer- painters TUBES magazineThe coal powered plant now in its last days of existence is on a scheduled close down by the end of March as the demolishers move in on the 31st. Fiddlers Ferry is one of the last five remaining coal fired power generation stations in the UK. It covers a huge amount of ground, and over the years it has seen an ironic nature spin off for the wildlife and water fowl, which have taken advantage of the ‘use’ of water the plant used for as a cooling agent and steam generator. Fiddlers famous Cooling towers can be seen across the North West of England with spectacular shows of steam rising to the heavens. One of the many images caught on camera, on video and in painted images by Smyth and Harrison.

The End Game is the demolition – which will be a visual spectacular, especially when the enormous towers come down. Yet there will be a touch of sadness about the whole closure. Despite the 21st century awareness that coal fired power generation needs to be stopped, for the good of the delicate balance of the environment as it is today, this power plant has been an iconic emblem of the North’s contribution to the wealth of the British Nation. It stand for a progressive, can do will do attitude, when it comes to independence and non-reliance on outside providers of essential energy requirements for a nation.

Shaun, Lee and Denis Taylor -painters TUBES Fiddlers Ferry Project

Shaun, Lee and Denis Taylor at Fiddlers Ferry in front of the first completed painting

Smyth and Harrison and to a great extent with the inspiration, ideas and support of the [silent] third member of the project (Denis Taylor artist and editor of Tubes) will present a two part set of exhibitions. One of the first will be at the fabulous Pilkington Glass Museum in St Helens (November 2020), with further venues that will be offered the current completed works (paintings, photographs and video) for  the show: “Fiddlers Ferry as it Stands” and a follow up show: “Fiddlers-Ferry as it Falls.” both shows acting as  historic records – a complete record  which one imagines will be permanently housed in an industrial dedicated Museum for future generations to view as an historic visual education.

You can view and read Shaun’s previous project which was documenting the Mersey Gateway Bridge – again Lee Harrison and Denis Taylor having provided support for Shaun. Click here to read and view the exhibition catalogue, written, designed and produced by painters TUBES magazine.
