Clockwork Gallery showcases work from the Underground collection by Chris Gray, who lives and works in West Yorkshire, England.
Underground is a series of fantastical underground rail networks (after Harry Beck) that connect each part of the globe to the others. What would you think if you could jump on a tube in London or Tokyo and arrive within an hour in New York? I suppose you’d hope to get a seat and not be sat next to a nutcase!!
Amongst other things, I create artworks based on the theme of the world underground map. The idea for a world underground tube came about when I was travelling far from home, so I thought I’d write about the thought process in relation to the physical journey that inspired it.
