'Beasts and More Beasts' by Jo Davis Trench - Sep 1 - 24

The work in the exhibition engages in a visual dialogue with the religious and secular imagery of medieval church carvings. They reflect an age of faith where visual metaphors were frequently used to convey God's message and the terrors awaiting the guilty in Hell were vividly evoked. Besides the fabulous beasts that are part of this teeming yet ordered world are intensely observed vivid depictions of nature, as exemplified by Norwich Cathedral's owl with a mouse in its beak. 
The prints and drawings on show explore the expression of these dogs, demons, saints and lions and their dual natures that can be found in the Bible stories and elsewhere.

The Revd Matthew Hutton is a Curate at St Stephen’s Church, Norwich, who has a passion for engaging with and teaching the Bible. This is an expanded version of the first Session of his 'Open Word 2017/18' course, which takes folk through the whole Bible over 18 evenings.
