Artist's description:

On 28th March 2003 the Pavilion was destroyed in an arson attack, and then on 11th May the Concert Hall, already seriously damaged in a huge storm the previous December, was also deliberately set on fire.
With the loss of its lottery funding the restoration of the West Pier became impossible.  Deemed a public hazard, the burnt-out Concert Hall was removed in 2010. The  skeletal remains of The  Pavilion, however, were left to become a feature of Brighton’s seafront. Its desolate beauty makes it much discussed, wondered about and photographed. For now, rusting away, it remains an iconic structure.

Multiple layers of watercolour pencil were applied to a fabric background. The piece was then embellished using free motion machine embroidery.

Materials used:
