A BARNSLEY artist’s latest work is causing quite the stir across the English Channel.

‘Sense of Belonging’ was created by Patrick Murphy and features 200 life-size seagull sculptures on the facade of the City Hall building in Le Havre, France.

Patrick said: “I feel very fortunate in having had the opportunity to work on this public art installation during a very challenging year for all of us.

“The City Hall in Le Havre provides a perfect location for this artwork.

“The city has so much art and design history, including being the setting and inspiration for Claude Monet’s famous 1872 painting Impression, Sunrise.

“The work is part of a continued evolution on a theme of home and shared space - something that all of us have had to consider during the pandemic.”
