The Journey

"At first glance, his very simple rotund draughtsmanship with its full ovals, curves and rare straight line, can seem childlike, even obvious. But it grows organically from the heart and, with time, conveys a warm satisfaction and peace."

The Journey is a compendium of 42 paintings by Peter Clare and explores the spiritual aspects of life’s major events. The paintings can be read on a number of different levels, from the superficial experience of life’s external journey through to the internal journey that each of us travels.

Within the collection, there is a series of 15 paintings of the Stations of the Cross which measure 310x410mm and are provided in 3 boxes.

The full collection of paintings range in size from 310x210mm to 1680x1220mm and therefore not all will fit in a standard car. We can send you a full inventory and catalogue to help you choose if you wish to borrow a selection or the full exhibition. The paintings are provided with an outside frame around the uncovered canvas. Apart from the 15 mentioned above, they are provided in bubble wrap. The exhibition comes with a catalogue, a Conversation and Reflection Booklets, inventory, practical notes and comments sheets.

Peter_ClareAbout Peter Clare

Born in London in 1935, Peter moved to Sheffield in 1940 where he lived till 1957. He was educated at Nether Edge Grammar School and for a short time Sheffield University. He did his National Service as a conscientious objector in Hospitals in Sheffield and London 1955 to 1957. He studied life drawing at St Martin's College of Art, London and, after obtaining a BSc degree in Mathematics in 196, Peter taught mathematics in secondary schools and colleges in Portsmouth, Birmingham, Buxton, Hampshire and Shropshire. During this time he built up a national and international reputation as a religious artist exhibiting widely. Raised a Quaker Peter converted to Catholicism in 1958. Regarded by many as a major contemporary religious artist, Peter has produced works of art that spring from a profound and essentially Christian experience of life. His paintings are praised for their powerful visual impact, their deep emotional content, rich colour and vigorous line, and, above all, for their compassionate spirituality
