Taxi For Falls

Fine Art Belfast Print

Belfast black taxis leave the rank at the top of Castle Street and make their way up ‘the Falls’. 

 

They travel past Divis Tower block and the mountain looms ahead.

 

Distinctive transmitters pull the viewer’s eye up towards the top of the Black Mountain.

 

These transmitters, traffic lights, railings and layers of Divis flats allow for an interestingly linear study.

The story behind...

Taxi For Falls

Even though I grew up in the north of the city, I travelled this route many times as a child.

From the car window I would strain my neck to stare up at the highest flat on Divis Tower block.

I wondered  what it was like to live up there. 

The lower Falls has a certain gritty and tough atmosphere. 

It has seen a lot through troubled times – good and bad – and I have tried to capture a sense of that here.

Even amongst the predominately dark, almost tonal study, little flashes of bright colour prevail.
