commission4mission's next exhibition will be during Passiontide (21st - 28th March) and will be held at St Laurence’s Upminster. Entitled Grace & Passion, the exhibition's centrepiece will be the first showing of a new set of Stations of the Cross by Rosalind Hore. The Stations of the Cross have been a big influence on her and her work. Each of her Stations feature three rose buds as a sign of the Trinity.
Rosalind, whose Pieta can also be seen at St Laurence, also has work at St Mary's Goring-by-Sea and, later this year, her Baptism of Jesus will be installed at St Edmund's Tyseley through a commission4mission commission. Rosalind seeks to express exaggerated emotion in her work through the use of elongated stylized figures, strong colour and sweeping folds, which exaggerate both movement and emotion. She uses Christian symbols frequently in her paintings; flames, waters of baptism, doves, cross etc.
Also featuring in the exhibition will be work by commission4mission artists: Adam Boulter, Colin Burns, Ally Clarke, Ann Creasey, Michael Creasey, Valerie Dean, Jonathan Evens, Rosalind Hore, Mark Lewis, Nadiya Pavliv, Caroline Richardson, Joy Rousell Stone, Henry Shelton, and Peter Webb. The exhibition will be the first opportunity to see work by our newest members, Adam Boulter, Ally Clarke, Nadiya Pavliv and Valerie Dean, in a commission4mission exhibition.
