Passacaglia and West Pier Brighton Murmuration
The Brighton Passacaglia is a huge curved abstract sculpture that sits on Brighton seafront and I love seeing the old West Pier behind it. I created this piece mixing up 2 of my photographs and collages with some drawing. It’s available as a Gicleé Print or a Canvas using the highest quality inks. For prices and available sizes please visit my Brighton and Hove Photos shop where you can buy it online.
Created by Charles Hadcock, the Passacaglia is constructed from recycled cast iron, weighs 20 tonnes and is five meters high. This lovely sculpture is made from tiles in the form of a tile tessellation, inspired by the limestone terraces at Black Head, County Clare in Ireland.
Some tiles are flat, others curved and all have textured surfaces that resemble Yorkstone paving. The reverse side of each tile reveals the nuts and bolts of the construction. The title of the sculpture comes from an Italian musical description. Hadcock wanted to describe the physicality of the sea and the expanse of the horizon.
My thanks to Public Sculptures of Sussex website.

Check out my new print of the beautiful Royal Pavilion in my new website BRIGHTON AND HOVE PHOTOS
It was built in stages for the Prince Regent between 1787 and 1823. This magnificent royal pleasure palace was revered by fashionable Regency society and is still a distinctive landmark for vibrant Brighton & Hove today.
