Event description
Join the artist behind the captivating new ‘Blackjack Sculptures’ commissioned for the Parish Church of St John Baptist.

About this event

Rodney will be exploring the relationship between realism and abstraction whilst also musing the nature and value of art and Christianity in the modern day.

"My aim in these sculptures for the beautiful church of St. John Baptist in Cirencester, is to make a statement about the relevance that St. John the Baptist and the Virgin Mary have within the context of contemporary Christianity. I also wish to affirm the understanding (expressed in the brief) that the Parish Church stands at the spiritual heart of the community. In doing so, I wish to produce contemporary works that are visually interesting, whilst taking care that they do not jar with the ancient structure of the church. The sculpture should appear to be a natural part of that structure, to which they would be complementary."
