Chichester Cathedral is delighted to present this collection of five sculptures by the award-winning sculptor and installation artist Diane Maclean.  Diane works mostly with large scale forms, in open spaces.  Her sculptures are often in stainless steel and they incorporate light, reflection and colour - inviting interaction with the viewer.  This 'interaction' takes on an extra dimension at Chichester Cathedral, as the sculptures are placed within and around this extraordinary place of worship that has welcomed people for over nine centuries.

Diane's visually-arresting pieces will include Circle of Light in the North Transept: A sanctuary of reflections and light.  

Road Untravelled:  A slim river of gleaming stainless steel creates a path across 'Paradise', the sacred central areaa of the Cloisters.  A quiet place for contemplation and reflection.

Thresholds on the South West Lawn: Three stainless steel portals connected together create three separate doorways.

Trinity suspended above the Arundel Screen: A Trinity of three circles of ever changing colours.

Resting Wing in the South Aisle: A single wing rests softly on a stone tomb.  Its warm reflective colours capture the light, changing throughout the day.  Inspired by the Chagall window at Chichester Cathedral.

Diane Maclean is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and her work has been exhibited in the UK, China, Canada, Japan and Norway.

This exhibition has been curated by Jacquiline Creswell, Visual Arts Advisor and Curator, in association with Chichester Cathedral.
