Drawings for a Cathedral

Last year as one of The Ten Group of Artists, I was able to exhibit some new drawings within Guildford Cathedral.  Our graduation ceremony for the Fine Art degree we all completed in 2010 took place in the Cathedral so the venue was the ideal place to celebrate the fifth anniversary in an exhibition called appropriately Quinquennial.

We decided to make new work for the exhibition inspired by the Cathedral itself.  My drawings took the theme of the Seven Virtues and the Seven Gifts of Spirit, encoding the words themselves and meditating on their meaning.

It was an interesting experience to research the venue and then exhibit there and the Cathedral's team were very supportive of our work.
