The Life & Legend of St Stephen: Paintings by Joe Machine

Joe Machine will present a significant new series of paintings on the life and legend of St Stephen at St Stephen Walbrook (16 - 27 May 2016).

Artist, poet and writer, Joe Machine, was a founding member of the first Stuckist group in 1999. His work has been raw and autobiographical. As a young man his involvement in crime such as burglary led to periods in youth offenders' prisons. He credits art as his way out of this lifestyle.

"Joe Machine is inspired by transcendence and relationship with God. His mythic figurative paintings with their stylized forms and patterned surfaces link us, as he has stated, to a collective past of symbolism and meaning where lives, like that of St Stephen, were spent in search of the spirit." Revd Jonathan Evens, Priest-in-charge, St Stephen Walbrook
