Holy Week & Easter

jake
This year we are very pleased to have Jake Lever’s brilliant new large-scale art work as the centrepiece of our Holy Week and Easter celebrations. The Blue and the Dim and the Gold is a mixed-media piece featuring an image of a lone figure in a boat on a gilded lake, dwarfed by a vast landscape of lake, hillside and evening sky. Jake describes the painting as a meditation upon the universal human experience and seeks to awaken spirituality and paths to inner healing, integration and wholeness. During Lent The Blue and the Dim and the Gold has been exhibited in Birmingham Cathedral, so we are very pleased and honoured to welcome it to St Luke’s over Easter.
