Mark Carr: The Cup of Life

  • 15 December 2018 — 27 January 2019 *on now

It is said, that if one drinks from the ‘cup of life’ to gain an immortal soul, another’s life is taken. This new exhibition of paintings and prints by multimedia artist Mark Carr reflects on this symbolic idea to explore and question ‘the human condition’ in the 21st century.

For this exhibition, Carr has returned to the very beginnings of his artistic practice, creating a striking set of acrylic paintings and woodcut prints. These form three distinctive works of art, all of which can be seen in this exciting display.

For visitors wanting to know a little more… Mark will be at the Museum and available to speak about his work on December 15, between 2pm and 4pm. No need to book, just pop along.

Suitable for

  • Any age
