Mural: A Map of the Sea and the De La Warr Pavilion

A commission by The De La Warr Pavilion on the UK South Coast to create a mural of a map reflecting the Pavilion’s relationship with the local area. Instead of turning toward the town of Bexhill, I took inspiration from the sea which can be seen though the De La Warr’s huge Modernist windows.
Using an Admiralty map as reference, the map charts the maritime environment of sandbanks, rocks, buoys and pipelines of Pevensey Bay. Alongside this, in the waves, other symbols are depicted – historical, environmental, political and creative – all narrating their connections with the sea.
The mural (2.6 x 6.4M) was initially drawn in pen and ink at a smaller dimension and then enlarged and printed onto archival wallpaper. The installation is part of a 6 month exhibition.
