My very good friend Robert Senior has been working in his spare time, and over several years, on a project to furnish the bare walls either side of the nave at St Joseph’s Church in Aldershot, with a connected series of religious artwork – oil on canvass. Last Saturday I visited the church to record with my camera the installation of the last major canvass – there is just one small painting to go.
|Pic 1 Through the arches you can see the last bit of wall waiting for canvass, with previously completed work on the right.||Pic 2 This shows the already completed right side of the nave.|
|Pic 3 – Joining the three sections of the work and framing||Pic 4 – Lifting up the joined canvas|
|Pic 5 – Robert touches up the joins between each canvas|
|Pic 6 – This gives an idea of the scale.||Pic 7 – strengthening the canvas with diagonal batons|
|Pic 8 – Manouvering the painting into position||Pic 9 – Ready for hoisting|
|Pic 10 & 11 – Installed and benches moved backed|
If you would like to see more of the actual artwork visit our Gallery of Christian Art.
