|Commission year||2000 - 2014|
This work was removed to allow for station refurbishment in 2014. A new space for temporary commissions was created to replace it and currently displays A High Place Beside The Water by Karen Atkinson, a montage of images and text shedding new light on the history of the town.
Lucy developed her ideas for this commission through working with a number of Hebburn’s senior citizens. Discussions regarding memories the ladies had of the area and stories relating to both their personal and working lives encouraged the artist to create a work that, through her language, would imaginatively capture the essence of Hebburn and celebrate its everyday life. The original artwork was produced using a range of techniques which included linocuts, fingerprints and collage and was then enlarged and reproduced onto vitreous enamel panels.
