The Veil Between
The Veil between
Inspired by a residency at Largo das Artes in Brazil I have created this piece in homage to the beautiful windows of St. Sebastians Cathedral in Rio. They reflect a beauty that is breathtaking :- a reminder of what is to come, and a perspective to live by.
Stained-glass throughout church history has been used as a physical symbol of the veil between the natural and spiritual. In this painting I echo the structure of rose windows, using fabrics bought in the Saara markets to create a rich depth of pattern. It is an expression of hope as we journey through life.
This painting has not been seen outside of my studio as yet.
