The exhibition entitled ‘The Heart of Things’ wrestles with questions of faith in relation to contemporary life. It is a mixture of painting and sculpture, and includes figurative, abstract and conceptual images, news articles and ready-made objects. Variously vibrant, playful, disturbing and heart-warming, the artwork challenges us about issues of faith in God, justice and human dignity.
Subject matters include work on famine, old age, fatherhood, our capacity for violence, suffering, the Beatitudes and the Trinity, as well as an installation of shoes and stories from Christians around the world.
Monday 16th to Friday 27th February (closed Tuesday 24th) open 10-5.30, Sundays 2.30-5. There are also Evening Openings on Tuesday 17th, Thursday 19th and Wednesday 25th February, 6-8.
Paul will be in residence during the fortnight to discuss his work with visitors, and talk about the issues raised in the artwork. This is a great opportunity for you to bring along friends to discuss the Christian faith in a relaxed and informal setting. why not bring your children or youth group during half term for related activities and a chance to meet the artist.
