Journeymen | A Celebration of the Skill and Craftsmanship of Stonemasons
On show in the Crypt until 3 March, this collection of drawings, prints and audio work has been developed through a valued engagement with the work of the stonemasons and their critical role within the building.
'We were introduced to their world and this helped us form our visual interpretation and understanding of the beauty and integrity of the stone.' ~ Darren Williams and Claire Burgoyne.
Reverend Canon Kimberly Bohan said: “On the weekends, we say morning prayer in the Crypt. The exhibit, was all the more powerful as we sat there in silence. I love that space always, but the large scale prints shift it in ways that are engaging, without disturbing the deep calm.”
Darren and Claire have collaborated and exhibited together since 2016 and are also Art & Design lecturers at Hereford College of Arts. Within their shared practice, drawing plays a major role in opening up a space for exploration at the start of projects.
