The Kinks’ 1967 single Waterloo Sunset is referenced in both the title of this work and the image itself. Here ‘Terry meets Julie’ at ‘Waterloo station’ and embrace in front of a bright orange sunset. The artist concentrates his use of colour on the burning sky and the central couple. The crowd and the station are painted grey to emphasise how fervently this couple focus on one another, whilst the surroundings fade and blur. They ignore the ‘Millions of people swarming like flies’ and retreat to ‘paradise’ when they ‘Cross over the river, Where they feel safe and sound’ gazing ‘on Waterloo Sunset.’
Originally created for the 2014 Thud, Crackle, Pop exhibition.
