About

'Angel of History: I Can See for Miles' is the first in Focal Point Gallery's new series of temporary public artworks commissioned specifically for the railway bridge that spans Southend-on-Sea's pedestrianised high street. For this inaugural project, artist John Russell has digitally reworked a famous portrait from 1981 of former British Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and focused exclusively on the aging woman's eyes. This new image, which will effectively gaze down Southend's main commercial thoroughfare, is installed on the north side of the overpass and printed on a fifteen-metre wide custom-made support.
