'Landmark Cathedral Exhibition'

The forthcoming exhibition by Manchester based artist, Colin Taylor, sets a new milestone for the Cathedral as the first time they have hosted an entire exhibition inspired by the building itself and by a single artist.

Colin Taylor, who usually paints landscapes, described his approach to the exhibition:

“What fascinates me about the Cathedral is its internal scale and space as much as the huge physical parameters. The exhibition does not depict a like for like representation of spaces within the Cathedral, rather how it feels to experience those spaces. I can’t think of a more fitting and fantastic venue to present these new works than the place that inspired it.”

The Bishop of Liverpool commented:

"Colin's paintings show how the great spaces of Liverpool Cathedral are both haunting and hopeful.  They give visitors a vision of a soul both daunted and transfixed by this vaulted space"

Canon Anthony Hawley who curated the exhibition said:

“There are not many artists who are also mountaineers. For those already familiar with the interior of of Liverpool Cathedral as well as for those who are visiting for the first time, we hope this exhibition will help us to see this magnificent space in a new way.”

‘Cathedral Space’ will be opened by the Bishop of Liverpool on Monday 7th March at 6pm and the exhibition will run until 26th April.  Further details on the artist’s work can be found at
