Frieda Hughes – artist and poet has an exhibition in Chichester Cathedral. At the end of 2015 she decided to create a work of art based on a commitment to paint a picture every day for a year. She ended up working for 400 days and it is this and other new pieces which are on show in the North Transept of the Cathedral until 17th August 2017.
Each of the 400 paintings is 10 inches by 14 inches – oil on canvas. They are all hung together in one block – 16 paintings high by 25 wide. Also on show are paintings from her collection ‘Alternative Values’ – this is a collaboration of Fried’s poetry and artwork, which is a personal interpretation of her childhood with her parents, the poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath and her experiences of love, life and death.
