Brockley mosaics


Capture Arts is an artist collective based in Brockley and Deptford and the creative team behind the popular Brockley Station mosaic. As part of the same project, they created two mosaics at St Saviour's Church Hall, Brockley Rise.

The mosaics will be formally "opened" (?) by Mayor Bullock on Thursday, December 3rd and the Broca will be providing tea and cakes for the finale event at 11.15am in Coulgate Street.

Everyone welcome.

It's great and is also the only worthwhile thing to emerge from the whole ramp debacle - but it does rather underline the grey bleakness of the surrounding concrete walls.

Although at least these haven't been tagged just yet.

It would be good to plant mature cherry trees on the mud-banks to accompany the mosaic.

That's gonna age badly - looks like the bottom of a swimming pool from the 1980s

I really like the mosaic, although something similar would be equally needed on the large areas of grey concrete that are still there.

Will Mayor Bullock be ''opening'' the shortcut mud ramp simultaniously?

"Unveiling"

"Opening" was their term, not mine :)

I'm sure replanting some trees was part of the scheme or am i imagining things?

whilst this is nice-ish the whole station and logjam of cars and puddles of water is just depressing. And it's odd but the two shops don't add much. There's never anything to entice you in.

Yes, but those planting anything will ahve to be very careful. When leafletting there the other evening and deploring with Rupert (of BXAG) the cigarette butts being chucked down onto the earthy bank (the scheme needs to include appropriate disposal bins) he was showing me the shoddy workmanship with electric cables barely under the surface.

This has really brightened up the place. I used to go to a fat club (:D) in that church hall.
