It was with a heavy heart that we said goodbye to our congregation of paintings after the last MASS. However Mike was on hand to entertain and illuminate us with his words. First, a somewhat shambolic rendition of ‘All you need is Love’ by the Beatles: Then, the sermon itself:
Painted for MASS – this is a portrait of my good friend, film-maker and photographer, Iain Gaffney. As usual, acrylic on canvas, but with added ‘found objects’ embellishing the super-8 camera on his lap.
Of course we sang. How can you have access to a pipe organ and not have a sing-a-long? Last weekend we enjoyed the anthem to ‘New Labour’ – ‘Things can only get better’ by D:Ream. Michael James Parker performs with the congregation.
Poet Michael James Parker gave another stirring sermon to the masses this week.
Just installed six canvases in the Brighton Media Centre, alongside The Show Below. Check them out if you have the chance…
