Stations of the Cross
This Easter weekend artist in residence and Senior Boys Head of Art Frances Ackland-Snow was invited to participate in the Stanley Spencer Gallery’s annual Easter walk around Cookham.
Owing to social distancing and lockdown restrictions, the walk was undertaken digitally with a video of the ‘virtual walk of witness’ created from the artwork of nine local artists. Artists were asked to reflect on the stations of the cross, a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion.
Culminating at Holy Trinity Church in Cookham, Frances painted the ninth station of the cross entitled “Jesus is taken down from the cross”.
