Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

The Groyne Series came about from observing the shapes of teenagers and kids playing and jumping into the sea from the sea groynes along the shoreline of the beach in Brighton. The scenes almost make a virtue out of the craze of ‘tomb stoning’ a term coined in the mainstream press. Painted in silhouette with glimmering highlights, these paintings seems to evoke memories of the height of summer for many people and the location could be anywhere in the world.
