CREATION – AN EXHIBITION
These 42 breathtaking panels of embroidery, painting and mixed-media are a luminescent piece of storytelling which took two years to complete. The tapestries are based on Bible verses about creation from Genesis 1–2, and are rich in detail, vitality and is even humorous – helping viewers to reconnect with the natural world through a blend of historic and contemporary artistry.
The tapestry panels, by artist Sue Symons, were completed in the summer of 2009, and were displayed at Bath Abbey alongside the Bath Diptychs. Creation: A Celebration is now on display at Emmanuel until the end of September, Tuesday to Friday 10.30-3.00.
