Brickfields

Brickfields is by British artist Clare Woods and is a large-scale artwork that wraps around the façade of the Eastern of the two National Grid power line tunnel head station buildings on Montfichet Road on the Park's Southern boundary. Woods first created the artworks as vast paintings. These were transferred onto over 88,000 ceramic tiles using digital printing and water jet cutting techniques, making it the most complex tile mural in the world.


Inspired by her time living in and around east London, Woods based her paintings on imagery of the waterways and an imagined future of the landscape. She chose to make the mural from ceramic tiles in reference to the area’s manufacturing history as the site of the former Bow tile factory.


Brickfields is part of two paired artworks by Clare Woods - see also Carpenters Curve
