The design of ‘Journey’ was an experiment inspired by a manuscript at the British Library. The
parchment I saw had been painted with a rich purple-red ink and the script was formed using
gold ink which appeared coppery in colour. Therefore I formed my cross in a similar way and to
achieve the layered textural depth effect I experimented with collage.
The working title for the piece was ‘Unknown Journey’, its layers representing C.S Lewis’ view
of death as an ‘onward and upward’ journey to a better, brighter, more ‘real’ place.
