At the end of the row.

Michael Pell's layered painting of the footbridge over the railway at the formerly-derelict end of Hampton Row.

I am sure you will recognise the location of this painting by local artist Michael Pell.

He sent it to me with the following email:

‘Today I saw your article about the old railway bridge (at the formerly derelict end of Hampton Row) and the terrace of houses being renovated. Interesting!

The long derelict houses are being brought back to life!

I have attached an image of a painting (A2 on Paper) I have done in the last few weeks that will be included in my up-coming exhibition. Although the bridge has seen better days I find it really attractive and love the rusty surfaces!”

Michael, who is the former Head of Art at King Edward’s School in Bath, tells me his exhibition is at the 44AD artspace in Abbey Street starting on Mon 31 for a week.
