Artist Juliet Goodden’s latest exhibition is packed full of colourful art with an important meassage - It’s Better When We Listen.
The art show at Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry features an array of paintings which bring together different faiths, featuring churches, mosques and temples side-by-side.
Her most recent works, painted in oil on sari fabric, mix together references and souvenirs of different faiths from around the world.
Among the things to be spotted in her work are everything from a Buddha statue from the Norwich Buddhist Centre and a Norwich Cathedral snow globe to small stone cows from India and American Indian Navajo Kachina dolls.
Ms Goodden, who is based in Harrow and Derby, said: “It is about encouraging understanding between faiths. The objects [in my paintings] are getting to know each other and this is what we all need to do.”
About her show’s title, It’s Better When We Listen, she said: “Rather than making assumptions about each other, we gain a better understanding when we listen to each other.”
It’s Better When We Listen is at Norwich Cathedral’s hostry until March 11. The free exhibition is open Monday to Saturday 9.30am-4.30pm and Sundays 10am-3pm.
