MICHAEL KENNY RA
‘THE CRUCIFIXX’ at Bath Abbey
‘STATIONS OF THE CROSS’ at Quest Gallery
Quest Gallery in association with The Royal Academy of Arts and Bath Abbey invites you to attend an exhibition of work by one of the most influential British sculptors of the 20th century, Michael Kenny.
On loan from the RA, these extraordinary works have been described as one of the finest examples of genuinely religious art within the Christian tradition, made since the Reformation. This joint exhibition features Kenny’s ‘Stations of The Cross, 1998-99’ which will be on show at Quest Gallery, Margarets Buildings and his iconic 1976 sculpture ‘Crucifixx’ which will be on display at Bath Abbey.
‘Plato referred to geometry, or at least to what the knowledge of geometry strives for, as the “knowledge of the eternal”. I think the early Renaissance artists who discovered perspective thought of it as a kind of divine revelation,God’s ordering of the World. So, it had that kind of spiritual dimension; I think what interests me about drawing as structuring is this possibility of revealing a spiritual dimension in the work.’
Michael Kenny, 1994
