Seafront sculpture sacrilege

Aug 2017

Notwithstanding the reputation of Brighton as a centre for the arts and artists philistines seem to be alive and kicking.

The setting of an important 20thC artwork has been recently ruined by the unthinking addition of a motley collection of seafront clutter. It is no consolation that some of it may not be permanent. Even the security camera mast, in itself, is sufficient to spoil the composition.

How it should look.

  2. Originally had a further section to make it look like a curving wave. It lost meaning once that was removed…

    1. Interesting. I dimly recall something of the sort. Do you know why?

    2. I think it was decided that it wasn't safe…
