Gregory Botts’ Stations, a series of fourteen abstract 46-inch by 34-inch oil-on-canvas paintings will be on view through April 2015 to the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street).

These renderings in blue, grey, and black tones, last seen at the Cathedral in early 2011, subtly parallel the traditional form of the Stations of the Cross, a spiritual path originating in early pilgrimages to Jerusalem. Botts’ work is described as “cool and subtle, rich with symbolism, poetry and philosophy,” elegantly playing off the spiritual heritage and physical beauty of the Cathedral.

The paintings are abstract, but the figure of a man is clearly visible, as are stylized plant forms, which Botts says are reeds. “The reeds are like the tangle at the bottom of the mind. In the Station paintings, the figure looks back into this mystery of the reeds as we look back into ourselves for the genesis of ideas.”

The paintings will hang in the Cathedral through April. The event is open to the public; a $10 donation at the door is appreciated.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
