ART & SOUL
Sixth annual solo exhibtion at All Souls Church, Halifax - September 2022.
I explored the growth of our town through the Industrial Revolution, the influence of the wealthy mill owners, growth of banking and local astounding inventions to modern times of media as part of our heritage festival.
I celebrated the legacy of Edward Akroyd, All Souls Church and Akroydon model village as an extension of current exhibition of works at Bankfield Museum.
My first ever print was a limited edition lithograph of 500 'From Beacon to Pike',
shows the expansive vista across Halifax from Beacon Hill to Studley Pike.
The original painting (from over a decade ago) took fifty six hours to complete.
Many prints remain in Halifax but several have gone to the corners of the globe.
A copy lives in the Halifax Town Hall and in our twin town of Aachen.
Only a limited number of the 500 remain, random and high numbers,
available to purchase from my local stockists.
