A contemporary set of Stations of the Cross consisting of fifteen 6ft oil paintings depicting the final Journey of Christ to his death and resurrection. The paintings were commissioned in 2005 and are on permanent display at Blackburn Cathedral in Lancashire.
“The Stations will be of national significance and compliment the already impressive stock of modern art at the Cathedral.” Dean of Blackburn.
“This major and permanent exhibition of modern art is probably the most adventurous of its kind in any English cathedral,” Canon Andrew Clitherow
“The most significant contemporary artistic commission in any church in the land” Canon Chis Chivers
‘‘Paintings by Penny Warden lining the nave depict Christ’s ‘agony, trials, suffering and death’. These are brittle, uncomforting images, although they give the cathedral an undeniably aesthetic potency.’ Simon Jenkins Journalist and Author
“Wonderfully creative” Archbishop Desmond Tutu
“Outstanding” Archbishop Rowan Williams
“Remarkable” Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham
