Venue: Liverpool Cathedral
Dates: 15/02/2020 - 08/03/2020
Times: All Day
A national cathedral tour of an exhibition by the British artist Gary Bunt that will give visitors across the country an opportunity to see newly conceived paintings and read their accompanying poems themed around the artist’s personal interpretation of the New Testament in some of Britain’s most iconic ecclesiastical buildings.Each of the fifty one works in the show employs the artist’s signature style, attention to colour and careful compositions that often depict scenes of dogs, farmers and landscapes that evoke a straightforward sophistication reminiscent of early British Modernist painting. Quaint, almost naive, his familiar scenes, each with its own poem, express a nostalgic view of England that radiates warmth and human sentiment.
