Brine Well with 'A' Power Station in background, Dow Chemical Plant is a colourful oil painting. The striking vertical tower structure and the tall chimney stacks give a degree of majesty to an unlikely composition. The plant was built with no other purpose than to be functional yet through Knighton-Hammond's eyes he sees shape, line and space combined to bring order to the disorderly industrial scene. He transforms the function into form and creates a subject worthy of artistic interest.
