Painting Exhibition at Chester Cathedral
During October, Frodsham Churches Together supported an Exhibition on Modern Slavery at Chester Cathedral. The artist, Sara Shamma, is one of Syria's most celebrated contemporary artists and is now based in the UK. Her works can be found in both public and private collections around the globe.
Her intention, through her paintings, in her own words, is 'to reach the subconscious of the viewer, moving them to feel, to ask questions, to find answers or not to find answers - I'm simply reacting and hoping that people will look harder at the subject'.
You can still visit the exhibition and responses by following the YouTube link and hear Sara Shamma talk about her paintings at the exhibition in the Chapter House.
