About this event
The unveiling of my painting The Last Madonna, with performances specially developed for the night on the theme of the contemporary relevance of religion.

I composed and performed some new music for the event, then Deborah Edgeley confessed modern sins about social media to a robot priest, before being absolved. Resident artist Victoria Boulter sang two songs, playing her guitar in accompaniment.

Finally, Deborah and I as Fall in Green performed poetry from the Testing the Delicates suite, with some extra poems I had composed for the evening about the loss of religion, a lament for the connection of humanity to nature.
