‘Face to Face’ Art Exhibition by Alison Thistlethwaite
Peterborough Cathedral is pleased to welcome the ‘Face to Face’ Art Exhibition by Alison Thistlethwaite in the New Building.
Alison’s work usually begins with a background colour, setting the key to the painting. In quite a musical way, colours are introduced layer by layer, over many days. During this time, layers of emotion can also be expressed. For example, a painting may move from denoting pain or grief at one stage to resolution and healing at a further stage. The completed painting contains both a time element – the sense of stages in human life and a simultaneous view of life in depth – expressing how in a whole person the things we have gone through, and our present joys, can all integrate.
