Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Exhibition: Finding My Religion

About the Exhibition:

The project was born from a cathartic need to document the loss of religion with the purpose of processing grief.

Yet another church closure in a small Welsh mining community prompted the beginning of what was a painful journey.

"At the age of twenty, experiencing rejection from the church and parishioners resulted in deep feelings of shame. This was because of the realisation of my sexuality and the belief that it did not fit with the orthodox teachings of Christian faith.

The images narrate emotions of abandonment and loss with the intention of helping others who have experienced the same ostracization.

Finding My Religion is also a journey of hope and was photographed in two churches in the Parish of Eglwysilan: St Peters and St Ilans."​​​​​​​
