Alan Pergusey: Cold War legacy

“This series of paintings is based on American and British radar and ‘listening’ installations in the north of England. The geometric structures create a striking and sinister contrast with the pastoral landscapes that surround them and with a constant police presence on the roads that surround them, high security fences and situations on hill tops they are the epitome of restricted sites. To the point where, even the local firefighters who have been given training and security clearance to deal with blazes on the sites are not allowed access to certain buildings and are instructed to let them burn rather than enter.”
