The Shadow of Angels - Paintings by KIM POOR
"They are our protectors, guides and spiritual messengers; a bridge between us and the divine."
Kim Poor is exhibiting a series of paintings in various mediums, including her unique technique of glass fused on steel plate, baptised ‘Diaphanism’ by Salvador Dali. The venue itself is iconic - the beautiful Christopher Wren church, St. Stephen Walbrook in the City of London.
The theme of this exhibition, curated by the legendary art historian and critic Edward Lucie-Smith, is the universal appeal of angels and their presence and significance in our lives. Their iconography has been a unifying force throughout time and appears in all religions and cultures. Especially in these troubled times, angels represent our need for reassurance in a very unstable world. They are our protectors, guides and spiritual messengers; a bridge between us and the Divine.
St. Stephen Walbrook, City of London EC4N 8BN
from 3rd to 29th October 2016
