About

Established British artist Chris Gollon has enjoyed many solo museum exhibitions and also museum acquisitions, including the British Museum. His highly-acclaimed Fourteen Stations of the Cross for St John on Bethnal Green, a grade-one listed church designed by Sir John Soane next to the Museum of Childhood, now permanently installed, were made Critic's Choice by art critics in both the Financial Times and The Times and were widely featured on BBC Radio and Television. Seven years on, Chris Gollon has now focused on the theme of women from the Bible. In Chichester Cathedral on 16th June, drawing partial inspiration from Carol Ann Duffy's poetry collection The World's Wife and a conversation with  Canon Chancellor Dr Anthony CaneChris Gollon will unveil what is----as far as we know---the first ever painting in art history of Judas's Wife. Gollon paints her very movingly, just as she receives news of the double death, that of Jesus and that of her husband, whose suicide note she holds. The exhibition also includes Gollon's very striking and affecting 'Pieta', which was recently used by Lord Harries along with works by Bellini, Michelangelo and Van Gogh, in his lecture at the Museum of London on the History of the Pieta in European art history. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-colour catalogue with texts by Sara Maitland, art historian Tamsin Pickeral, Revd Canon Dr Julie Gittoes and Revd Canon Dr Andrew Bishop.
