This will be a print selling exhibition. The originals are in Exeter Cathedral until 29th March. The main core of the exhibition relates to the 14 Stations of the Cross, . The theme follows the journey of Jesus from the garden of Gethsemane to the place of his crucifixition, death and burial

About

Traditionally the 14 stations of the Cross are found in churches and are used as a contemplative time to stop and reflect , especially during Lent, the period leading up to Easter.  As the framework for the series, I chose to use the Scriptural version, which has direct links with the gospel narrative. The originals were made with mixed media, including materials such as wood ash, charcoal, pastel, ink wash and metal leaf.   I wished to avoid using human representation, and found the images of the medieval Arma Christi as good source of inspiration.  Via Crucis, is a culmination of three years research and work into the meaning and significance of Lent and how it can relate in our lives today.
