In this exhibition Coervers and Roche present a series of artworks that embrace classic and iconic religious masterpieces and follow a storyline of love, judgement and sacrifice. Taking classical biblical characters and portraying them in a modern setting, questioning how much our views and morals have changed since the original pieces were created.

The opening of the exhibition marks a turning point for Roxan, with the release of her new style of photography and post processing.

The proceeds from one of the pieces are being donated to the artists chosen charity Gay Wellington (www.gaywellington.org) to help support and fund the wonderful work they are doing in our local community.
