CANOPY COMPASS ROSE
Inkjet print on acrylic, with lightbox mounting and painted extrusion
150cm x 150cm (print)
Commissioned by Trinity College Bristol during Sheona Beaumont’s year as Artist-in-Residence.
With inspiration from: the Compass Rose of the Anglican Communion; the Octagonal Church, Capernaum; Mary Watt’s Cemetery Chapel, Surrey; the Ruthwell Cross and apse, Dumfriesshire; and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem.
The crowning piece of the year has been the back-lit, perspex artwork Sheona has produced for our newly refurbished chapel, a photograph of the woods behind the chapel with a central cross shape, which adorns the celling space and draws gasps of wonder and appreciation from all who come into the space. It is truly a glimpse of the kingdom.Revd Dr Emma Ineson, Principal
