‘A dance at the Bandstand.’
The Bandstand in Brighton is a popular spot in Brighton. Once a week a group of dancers take over it to do their practices. This print is a joyful celebration of movement to music set on the Bandstand and surrounded by the sea with the West Pier on the horizon. For this art print I borrowed from a black and white drawing of Jean Cocteau of Nijinsky and Diaghilev dancing.
I created this print from my original ink drawings to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks. I issue the formats A1 & A2,A3 and A4 as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print.
This print belongs to the series of prints I have created under the name ‘Beach Art’. This series celebrates people happily spending their leisure time at the beach. Swimmers, divers, paddleboarders and the occasional tight-rope walker. Shimmering seas and bright sunny skies bathe with light these characters.
With a hint of nostalgia that looks at the heyday of Britain’s seaside, these designs have my distinctive style and pay homage to the works of artists such as Robert Tavener and the New Romantic British artists John Minton and Keith Vaughan.The West Pier appears in most of the prints in the series.
I started this series in the spring of 2021 to mark the start of my art residency with the West Pier Trust.
