Labyrinthe

Was installed at Le Théâtre des Treize Vents in Villeneuve-sur-Lot during May 2018.

This time Joël Coupé, Isabelle Tapie, Sabine Dugarry and I created our Labyrinthe installation on the stage at the theatre, with a single pathway winding across the stage.

Each sculpture, mobile and painting had its own space and was illuminated – sometimes with single lights, others with colour-changing lights – all of which highlighted patterns, textures, colours and shadows in the darkness.

Here are some images from our show.

Ruth Dent: Strata (r) and Blizzard

Sabine Dugarry: Minotaure

Isabelle Tapie: Theseus

Art for Evensong Exhibition

Art for Evensong Exhibition at Rochester Cathedral

Rochester Cathedral, Altar

Inspired by Choral Evensong at Rochester Cathedral, I created a series of prints, a visual journey through the service, which I called ‘Celebrating Evensong‘.  I was thrilled when asked by the Dean & Chapter of Rochester Cathedral to enlarge the images and to paint them onto canvas banners measuring 1.35 x 2.5m, so they could hang in the Choir Transepts.
