Transformations of a Myth.

A multi-panel altarpiece referencing ‘The Virgin of Mercy’ by the early Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca, commissioned in 1460. The main panel portrays the mercifully protective gesture of the Madonna enfolding her followers in her mantle. Other figures include the Crucifixion, the Angel, Prophets and Saints. Along the base are five scenes from the death of a young male sperm whale beached on the North Norfolk coast.

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.
