Irish-born artist Shane O'Driscoll creates limited edition, hand-pulled screen prints which beautifully capture a sense place, with strong, artistic sensitivity. 'West Pier Starlings II - Blue' depicts Brightons skeletal West Pier in shades of deep indigo, as it perches beside the shingle beach, its shadow glistening in the white waves. Above, a perfectly spherical sun sits low in the sky, coloured in a gently harmonious tone of powder pink, while a flock starlings hover above their rust-framed roost. Minimal yet arresting, 'West Pier Starlings II - Blue' powerfully evokes the mood of Brighton beach at sunset, through a deft sensory approach to both colour and composition.
