Brighton Beach Holiday is an acrylic piece on gallery wrapped canvas. It is ready to hang and is a bold statement piece that will bring Brighton Beach into your home. It is 91 x 152cm.

 

On Brighton Beach sits 82 distinctive bathing boxes, a row of wooden structures lining the foreshore at Brighton Beach.

 

Built well over a century ago in response to very Victorian ideas of morality and seaside bathing, the bathing boxes remain almost unchanged. All retain classic Victorian architectural features with timber framing, weatherboards and corrugated iron roofs, though they also bear the hallmarks of individual licencees' artistic and colourful embellishments.

 

Thanks to these distinctive decorations, the boxes turn the Brighton seaside into an immediately recognisable, iconic beachscape that can transform by the hour according to season, light and colour.
