Drawings: Canterbury Cathedral
Places that I have encountered while in the course of my career as a conservator have always been at the heart of my work. This series of drawings explores the perspectives of the fabric and environment Canterbury Cathedral – especially places that are often unseen by the visiting public. The quiet, undecorated, less visited rooms and passageways of the cathedral have always inspired my imagination.
I am always fascinated by the way light can shape the mood of a place and I was inspired by the light that fills the spaces and its effects on the surrounding architecture. Beginning with a set of exploratory drawings, I also developed a series of paintings on glass. Some of these panels can be seen here…
This body of work was exhibited in simultaneous exhibitions at Canterbury Cathedral and The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in 2017-18.
