Having taken up an invitation to exhibit this year with Chapel on Station, I decided to work with the same materials and method that I am employing in my doctoral exhibition – but with the sole intention of pursuing something that might be simply beautiful. I decided to paint ‘The Beatitudes’ in celebration of balance and equilibrium. The equidistant space in the gallery offers an opportunity for the work to surround and even hold us. It seemed that the best way to ensure the work was at home in this place was to choose the same colour as the walls for the ground of each painting. This is why each of these works began as I painted over an older work with the gallery’s signature, ‘Promised Land’.
