The Soul in the Machine

Friday 20th May 2016, 7.30 pm

Tickets £10 (£8 concessions) available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/derbycathedral

“We are more than bodies to be fed to a machine. We are made for more than work. We have souls, we have spirits and somewhere in this dead city there must be a place for those things.” London, 1844 - Centre of Empire, crucible of the New Jerusalem. Her gutters run with effluent and blood and her skies are choked with the smoke of a hundred factories and foundries, but above the smoke, the stars still shine. George Williams is a country boy who comes to the city to find his place in the world and to make his mark. Appalled by the spirit-crushing rhythms of the Worker’s life he fights to spread the light of God, and create a place where the soul can be nurtured. Commissioned by YMCA, Created by Saltmine Trust ' The Soul in the Machine' is a play for anyone who works for a living.

Age recommendation for the show is age 12 and upwards.

Looking at Thorpe Cloud is what visitors to the Sir Richard Morris Lounge will be doing during April and May with help from Tony Deeming. This will be the second of Tony’s exhibitions for us and, as before, he has chosen a new subject to challenge his talents.

Tony has always combined a professional career in science with a passion for art. Having taken early retirement from a professorship of inorganic chemistry at University College London in 2006 Tony set up a studio in the double garage adjacent to his house in Ashbourne and has spent ten years working on art! Most of his current work is figurative, he runs a weekly life drawing group in Littleover, however, his scientific interest in materials has led him to explore different ways of making marks and to focus on the abstract qualities of his subjects. Hence he has always enjoyed picking a subject and working on variations, in particular variations in the manner of its representation.

He says, ‘This exhibition is largely inspired by Cezanne’s depiction of Mont Sainte-Victoire and his many drawings and paintings in watercolour and oils. Cezanne’s mountain is best viewed from one direction but Derbyshire’s hills are no less impressive and can often be viewed in the round. Thorpe Cloud has been photographed and painted many times but despite this Tony has viewed it from many directions, in different weathers and times of day and depicts it in pen and ink, monoprint, watercolour, collage and mixed media. Like Mont Sainte-Victoire, Thorpe Cloud is made of limestone and is not the highest hill in the area but both are certainly impressive in spite of over familiarity.’

There will be an opportunity to meet Tony and hear him talk about his work at the official launch of his exhibition on Friday 1st April from 5pm to 6pm in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge. The exhibition will be on show from 1st April to 31st May, Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
