14 September 2013 – 13 October 2013

Vicken Parsons is best known for her small, intimate paintings of landscape and architectural space. But for this special installation of work in St Peter’s Church, Parsons showed a number of recent sculptures or ‘painted objects‘ that might almost be models for utilitarian buildings. At the same time they are compelling paintings on a three dimensional ground. Parsons wrote: ‘The painted surface is sometimes solid and rugged, sometimes a thin veil of colour and sometimes abraded and partly taken back to the metal concealing and revealing the materiality of these very dense, solid, milled steel blocks.’

During 2014 the artist also presented her work within the Kettle’s Yard House.

St Peter’s, a beautiful small church, was rebuilt in the 18th Century but retains 12th Century and Roman details. It is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

The exhibition was accompanied by an illustrated catalogue. You can buy this catalogue here.
