I attended the preview of this show last night and was thrilled for Paul, to see a packed out gallery!

"A visual feast of pattern, Colour and movement", it surely is. It is the kind of art which rewards the lengthened gaze of the viewer, revealing new patterns as you stand and stare. Abstract art with hidden depth, that takes you beyond mere surface display.

'Faith', 'Hope' and 'Love' are present, my favourite (and please don't psychoanalyse this) is 'Faith'! Imaged in Passion colours of red and purple, we see the sparks fly as faith makes contact with Creation; friction caused as it is applied to every square inch of life; human, aesthetic, the business of art and the art of business!

In the depths of the basement there is the visual (and contemplative) treat of images of Christ. This is life stripped bare, flesh stripped to the sinews, in an act of genorous giving, of bounteous grace.

Go along and support Paul and be visually challenged, but excited too!!
