The Town by the Sea

These two pieces are part of an exercise that revisits previous artwork. If it works small, it might work big too. A simple line of thought that implied a mammoth effort and long time on the drawing board. Two iconic images of Brighton. The Royal Pavilion and the Palace Pier.

Brighton Palace Pier axonometric view. -Brighton Victorian leisure Palace Pier. The Palace Pier was constructed as a replacement for the Chain Pier, which collapsed in 1896 during construction. It quickly became popular, and had become a frequently-visited theatre and entertainment venue by 1911. Aside from closures owing to war, it continued to hold regular entertainment up to the 1970s. The theatre was damaged in 1973 and following a buy-out was demolished in 1986, changing the pier’s character from seaside entertainment to an amusement park, with various fairground rides and roller coasters.
