St Breaca Church, Breage, Cornwall August 2014

Father Peter invited Zoe to decorate Godolphin chapel for one day in August. In response the eleven oil paintings were especially made or selected to hang in the healing Chapel, and included two drawings on ceramic vases.

She chose the painting depicting the war in Syria, to represent world conflict, the flower paintings either side memorials to the suffering and loss of war. The painting was inspired by a news report the artist heard in June this year, a woman living in Syria told a reporter that, in the morning she was making breakfast for her family when she heard a helicopter flying over her house, they dropped a bomb, it destroyed her home and her husband lost a leg. In response Zoe made this painting.

Angels were present in many of the pieces including the two small paintings on the window ledge depicting St Ives. Canvas’s of Adam and Eve were fitted into the chapels oak entrance doors , with sleeping children in paintings above. An almost life size Madonna and Child hangs to the left of the Alter, in which Jesus is depicted standing as a small child. Under their feet, the decoration echo’s the worn pattern which can be found in the murals on Godolphin Chapel wall.

Photographs are all that remain to record the event , but the painting ‘Madonna and Child’ remains on site.
