Michael has praised the “creativity and individual innovation” of local artists at an unveiling of the Eynsford Village Society Public Art Initiative installation on Eynsford Station this morning (4).

Known as “Images”, the installation is comprised of works of art, each painted in a different style by six local artists, and celebrates the unique aesthetics of the village.

Train operator Southeastern sponsored the project, and David Statham, Managing Director of Southeastern, was there to provide frames to exhibit the art along platform 1 of Eynsford Station.  He said the purpose of the project is to generate interaction among people waiting for the train.

Michael said: “This is a great example of the creativity and individual innovation local people have to offer.  Railway stations provide a perfect platform for public art – something that can bring people and communities together on those otherwise restive commutes to work.”
