Songs of the Soul: Father Douglas osf in Gallery A
A series of paintings inspired by William Blake’s poems Songs of Innocence & Songs of Experience
Songs of the Soul represents in paint issues such as the environment, equality/inclusiveness, aging, homelessness, depression, religious/racial differences, mortality and the need for social justice.
Father Douglas’ fondness for dogs leads to the imagery in this body of work that expresses how humankind has not changed since Blake exposed these troubles to the world over two hundred years ago.
