Corpus – An exhibition of four paintings by Br Emmaus O’Herlihy

All four works comprising CORPUS (the Beloved Disciple ; Christ risen; the naming and creation of Adam; the Conversion of Saul) were painted over the last year when Br. Emmaus entered Novitiate with the community of Glenstal Abbey. Each painting is worked on a 4′ x 6′ stretched canvas in oils.

This work endeavors to bear witness to the challenging declaration of faith in a God made man, whose life, suffering, death and resurrection insists that our salvation rests in embracing Him in our human condition—not apart from, or in spite of it : In Tertullian’s lapidary phrase Caro Cardo Salutis (The flesh is the hinge of salvation.)

The exibition space is open each day from 1.00pm – 5pm. Please contact the monastery reception for directions and more details.
