The River of Life reredos

The River of Life reredos

"Antonia Hockton’s River of Life reredos at St Georges, Great Bromley, Essex adds greatly to the way the altar in the side chapel works.  This was just what a parish church should be doing: engaging a local artist who explores the context and makee something new that flows into the altar and on to those who worship there, and although it may have seemed a lot to the parish, it was achieved relatively inexpensively." Nick Holtam, chair of the judging panel for the ACE Award for Art in a Religious Context 2015 (taken from his speech at the prize-giving)
