Shared Themes - Inspired by Spencer
Artist Robert Senior presents an exhibition of work with themes linking to those of Stanley Spencer.
Wednesday 31 July - Sunday 4 August
Robert has worked as an artist since completing his BA in Fine Art in the mid-eighties. Throughout this period he has also worked with people suffering from mental illness and those with special needs, including several years with Mother Teresa's Missionary of Charity Brothers.
These areas of experience have been keenly formative in the spiritual nature and purpose of Robert's artwork, most of which is a reflection on biblical themes and contemporary Christianity.
In this exhibition, Robert explores themes linked to those of Stanley Spencer which are so prominent in his paintings at Sandham; particularly those of spirituality expressed through the everyday, rooted in autobiographical events and relationships, and a keen interest in humanity.
