Inspired by Oxton Road, one of the most culturally diverse roads in Wirral, Brigitte Jurack's new work is made up of highly patterned multi-coloured sculptures. The road is home to the much-loved Iranian fruit seller K&K, the new Thai food store, Polish and International food shops, the popular record shop Skeleton and numerous charity, hardware, modelmaking and electrical shops.
The multi-coloured and modern, audacious, vibrant 'rock' sculpture is solid enough to sit. It is a cross between jazz, Acid House, The Singh Twin's decorative work and Peter Blake's Dazzle Ferry.
