Stations of the Crown of Thorns commission

Stations 10, 14 & 15

Stations 6, 7 & 8

Stations 1, 2 & 3

Henry Shelton has completed work on 12 of the 15 Stations of the Crown of Thorns which have been commissioned for St Paul's Goodmayes. A frame is currently being constructed for the tryptich of Stations 11, 12 and 13 which Henry will paint in situ and which will complete the commission and create the central focus of the scheme.
In this semi-abstract scheme, Christ is represented solely by the Crown of Thorns. The colour scheme of the Stations harmonises with the existing stained glass windows within the church and provides an emotional register for the Stations themselves. The additional Station represents the risen Christ in the form of bread and wine and will be located in the Lady Chapel.
