An exhibition of painting & sculpture by Paul Hobbs
St Peter’s Church, Hook Norton OX15 5NH
22nd to 31st May 2010, Daily 12 – 6pm, Thurs & Fri till 8pm

This exhibition wrestles with questions of faith in relation to contemporary life. It is a mixture of painting and sculpture, and includes figurative, abstract and conceptual images, news articles and ready-made objects. Variously vibrant, playful, disturbing and heart-warming, the artwork challenges us about issues of faith in God, justice and human dignity.

The show reflects Jesus Christ’s passion for the poor and vulnerable, for relationships, for an end to violent conflict and suffering. It details the death of Christ and the so-called foolishness of God in dying to bring us forgiveness and reconciliation with him. Above all it seeks to show the relevance of Christ to everyone in all situations.

Paul Hobbs exhibits in a variety of contexts: galleries, art centres, schools, churches, cathedrals and festivals.

St Peter’s Church is hosting this exhibition as part of Connect 2010, a series of events in the villages, for people to connect with one another in exploring the great issues of life and purpose and meaning.
