St Peter & St Paul Church Extension 2018-2019
In 2018 I made a proposal to the PCC to be Artist In Residence for the Church Extension.
The idea of recording construction isn’t new of course: the Bayeux tapestry records Romanesque construction after 1066 and Canterbury has wonderful drawings showing peasants making great Gothic cathedrals. Looking at those images, what struck me was their vivid realism: everyday people working with hoists and mallets and saws. In the same way I tried to record construction today: scaffolding, hi-vis jackets, digger trucks, saws. And the builders accepted - sometimes humoured - this mad woman who wanted to draw concrete reinforcement or bricks being laid.
Now many hours and one hundred and fifty sketches later, an ongoing sequence of drawings is recording the church as it was, the bits that are now hidden, the new building and the people that created it. Amongst the drawings are rubbings from gravestones uncovered by construction, architectural details and materials no longer visible. A small selection of this work is shown here.
