‘Made from Deptford’ is Steve Burden’s fourth solo show where he uses the Pepys Estate
in Deptford, south London as the core subject and foundation for his paintings. Born in Greenwich, London and inspired by his own experiences growing up on the Pepys Estate, his paintings investigate dystopian themes and ideas associated with British housing estates. Burden is interested in exploring the social issues that arose from the creation of this estate – security, isolation and control – as well as its design and architecture, and the history of the site. This exhibition examines the estates past, present and future via a selection of several works that include painting and three-dimensional elements.
