The recently recreated bandstand is situated close to the decaying skeleton of the old west pier.
I have used bright colours and a wildly distorted perspective to present this landmark as if dancing in the sunlight. The painting is a testament to music and dance which are both dear to my heart and most certainly a central part of the culture of Brighton.
‘Bandstand’ forms part of my ‘Dreams’ collection which explores and exaggerates the psychological influence of both built and natural structures on our moods and perceptions.
By distorting and altering both the colour and form of my observations I encourage my viewers to look in a new way at familiar landmarks with a surreal understanding.
