SHAKESPEARE-inspired artwork set to be exhibited in Stratford’s Holy Trinity Church.

Seven specially commissioned paintings by Jonathan Waller will be displayed in the church from April to August to mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death.

Jonathan, who was born in Stratford and christened at Holy Trinity, lectures in Fine Art at Coventry University.

Revd Patrick Taylor said: “This is a truly unique and exciting project. The exhibition will provide a major talking point, encouraging visits from those who would not normally consider us, and will give Holy Trinity its own voice during the excitement of April 2016.

“Shakespeare is revered because of his ability to express the complexities of the human condition. Through this unique exhibition we can use Shakespeare’s words to draw parallels with the ever present love of God which comforts and sustains us throughout our lives.”

Jonathan also has work in collections at both the Tate Gallery and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
