I was invited to be Artist-in-Residence at the Birmingham Conversations, a gathering of people of different faiths to explore current issues affecting the city. At the end of the residency I created this painting for a tour of faith and community settings in Birmingham. Each mark has its own space, yet connects to those nearby. Groups of marks flow in different directions, creating a sense of vibrancy and energy, similar to a dance. Whilst we are beautifully diverse in our beliefs and cultures, we share a common humanity that allows us all to flourish in our amazing city.
