I issue the formats A0, A1 & A2 as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print. The smaller formats A3 and A4 are form open edition signed prints.
John Nash remodelled The Brighton Royal Pavilion into what we can see today in glorious Indo-Saracenic style. The works of the Marine Pavilion began in 1815 and took seven years to complete. George chose architect John Nash who proposed an Indian style in response to the design of the new stable block. Nash was also inspired by landscape gardener Humphrey Repton (who had published designs for a new palace based on Indian architectural forms) and based many of his ideas on a publication called Oriental Scenery by Thomas and William Daniell (1795-1808).
The complex composition of domes, towers and minarets created a romantic exterior. Either side of the central large dome are two towers that serviced the interior rooms over the Saloon, one with a staircase, the other with a hoist. To achieve a picturesque effect the rendered surfaces of the Royal Pavilion were painted to create a unified vision of a building made of Bath stone.
This print belongs tonal collection named ‘Antique Blue and Ochre’. This is the first colour scheme palette I developed. The colours are inspired from a small antique drawing of a palace in India from a drawing I found at the Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco. This instinctive process has shaped a modern print with an strong echo from the past.
