This painting was commissioned the Bishop of Gloucester for the chapel at Bishopscourt. It is inspired by the ancient Neolithic Irish ‘triskele’ and was used by the early Christians as a symbol of the Holy Trinity - God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Gloucester Cathedral is dedicated to St Peter and the “Holy and Indivisible Trinity”, and I wanted to create an object of freedom and flow that would animate the space and inspire contemplation and worship.
