Bryher and Beyond
New paintings and works on paper private view 2nd November 9pm exhibition runs 3-8th November, 11am-6pm the Crypt, St Mary Magdalene Church, Rowington Close, Little Venice, W2.
Step through the wardrobe door or rather into the dark mysterious crypt of St Mary Magdalene Church in Paddington to enter not Narnia but two equally far flung, exotic and romantic worlds; Bryher on the Isles of Scilly and New Mexico. New work painted en plain air in sometimes testing conditions by Barker-Mill, brings the colour, romance and energy of these lands into the surprising environment of a grade 1 listed Victorian high gothic church in Little Venice. The intimate scale of the paintings echo our place in the world and their tenderness and fragility evoke our own relationships and feelings of wonder towards our loved ones and nature. An added bonus is that before the private view on 2nd November at 9pm, there will be an opportunity to hear Faure’s Requiem performed liturgically in the full orchestral version as a Solemn Mass for All Souls’ Day, starting at 7.30 in the Victorian Splendour of St Mary Magdalene Church.
