What the artist says:
Built on Coal narrates the Northeast's historic journey from the labour below the Earth's surface through the heat and toil of the iron smelting above to the grimy-windowed factories which generated the wealth of industrial Britain in the late 19th Century. Built on a foundation of coal and sustained by the sweat, poverty and misery of those whose smoke-filled lungs powered the wheels of progress.
