Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
1982 by David Kemp. An abstract sculpture in metal. This is a wheeled horse and carriage made from a complex of metal and scrap, incorporating objects which reference the transport theme. The piece contrasts with the vitreous enamel finishes of the station and the subject matter alludes to the earliest form of rail transport.
