Thankfulness in Porton *Updated

by Michael Ford last modified 07 Oct, 2013 06:05 PM

Local artist Tamsin Loveday presents her latest project at St Nicholas’ Church, Porton, until 13 October 2013 as part of the Salisbury Art Trail.

According to the artist herself, 'Thankfulness' comprises an "ambitious scale, site and context specific, sculptural installation combining paper cuts and drawings developed with members of the church.

"Scriptural and prayerful content make this artwork particularly relevant at harvest time, reflecting a literal and spiritual harvest. Rich visual imagery and symbolism resonate with personal and collective expressions of the Christian faith."

Taking the form of a sheet being lowered by its four corners, the curves of the work echo the architecture of the building, creating an intimate sheltered space. The lacy canopy is also intended to evoke the ancient Tabernacle mentioned during the Exodus in Bible times.

UPDATE: The project was part sponsored by the charity 'Focus in on Life'.
