Saints of the Pillar.

A stylite or pillar-saint was a Christian ascetic who spent their life on a pillar, preaching, fasting and conversing with gods. They believed that the mortification of their bodies would ensure the salvation of their souls. The life was one of extraordinary endurance and privation.

Richard James PortraitRichard James was born in 1963 in Northampton. He has works in private collections all over the UK and US. Much of his work makes strong use of astronomical association: an attempt to recognise the greater mystery inherent in the commonplace fragments of exhausted life. He strives to offer glimpses of the unknown, to uncover fragments of hidden mystery and explore the subliminal landscape concealed by the everyday.
