Description

Eastbourne Pier is a large colour linocut, approximately A3, of the beautiful pier in Eastbourne, East Sussex. It is part of a very small edition of 11.

Eastbourne Pier is a hand-pulled colour linocut in water-based inks. The actual print is 38cm wide and 27cm high (roughly A3 – so fairly large). It is printed on acid-free paper and signed by me, and sent with a backing board and white mount so that it can easily be framed in a standard A2 size frame.

Each print in the edition is inked up and pressed individually, resulting in some slight differences between each print – making each one a unique work of art.

Eastbourne Pier was opened in 1870. Paddle steamers used to run trips along the coast from here, as well as to the Isle of Wight and Boulogne.

At one stage there was an annual birdman competition from the end of the pier, where competitors in various flying contraptions or wings leapt into the water whilst seeing who could “fly” the furthest.

There was a major fire on the pier in 2014, but it was quickly fully restored and remains one of the glories of Eastbourne.

International orders will be sent without a mount, rolled with acid-free tissue paper in a tube.
