  • Knock's Stations of the Cross

    In July 2018 new Stations of the Cross by artist Ger Sweeney were installed in the Basilica at Knock Shrine, Ireland, just in time for the visit by Pope Francis. The Stations were executed on stretched raw linen and they run almost floor to ceiling in the Basilica, ensuring that all pilgrims have a good view of the Stations in order to facilitate prayer and the saying of the Rosary. This incredibly striking artwork is the inspiration behind this book commissioned by Knock Shrine, which includes images of the Stations and reflections written by 14 different guest writers.Learn More

  • John Golding

    John Golding: Finding the Absolute, focusing on Golding’s abstract paintings from the 1960s, offers a unique opportunity to appreciate Golding at the outset of his lifelong pursuit to realize the ever-elusive promise of the absolute through abstraction. These works, most of which have not been seen for nearly half a century, are dynamic, youthful, brimming with the influences of the great exponents of abstraction – Mondrian, Malevich, Pollock, Newman – and palpably created through the artistic language of the 1960s, the decade of swinging Pop and artistic...

  • Ashley Jackson's Watercolour Sketches

    'I am not one for pretty pictures.' Perhaps when I am long gone this will be a quote that I am remembered for alongside my paintings. For you will mostly find me in the gallery on a sunny day and out on the moors when it is at its most inhospitable, for these are the days that captivate me. All your senses are alive, so that what you visibly see is not the whole painting , the rest comes from you.

    Ashley Jackson's Watercolour Sketches is a collection of these raw drawings combined with my... Learn More
