Description

American printmaker Kevin Fletcher has spent much time in the United Kingdom and, in this monotype, makers a personal observation about the British Midlands, which were the center of the industrial revolution but have fallen on hard times with manufacturing competition from overseas and a lower than the average UK human resource skills in science and technology. These areas will be among the most affected when Brexit happens, though they overwhelming voted for it.

Fletcher depicts a crumbling infrastructure, a bridge, crumbling in disrepair. In the distant background a storm rages.
