Wooden blocks coloured like liquorice all sorts and coated with news headlines, a machete in a box, a cloth woven with names, a circle of shoes arranged around a tree - there is plenty to amuse, challenge and disturb here. What is compassion? Where is God in suffering? How do we value ourselves and others? Are the ten commandments relevant today? This show wrestles with questions of life in the context of faith.
 
It is a mixture of painting, sculpture and installation, and includes figurative, abstract and conceptual images, news articles and ready-made objects. Variously vibrant, playful, disturbing and heart-warming, the artwork challenges us about issues of faith in God, justice and human dignity.
 
The artwork is stylistically varied and will be of interest to art students for its concepts, techniques and processes. The themes cover all kinds of social and religious issues, and have proved most engaging and challenging with every kind of audience, young or old, religious or atheist, artistic or not. The exhibits include work on famine, old age, fatherhood, our capacity for violence, suffering, the Beatitudes and the Trinity.
