Newport Street Gallery presents an exhibition of work by Rachel Howard (b.1969). The show is the first UK exhibition of Howard’s series of paintings, Repetition is Truth – Via Dolorosa. This body of work was the subject of a 2011 exhibition at Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Donnaregina, Naples, Italy, curated by Mario Codognato.
Commissioned by the Murderme collection and produced between 2005 and 2008, the series takes inspiration from the Stations of the Cross, Via Dolorosa being the path taken by Jesus to Mount Calvary. Whilst referencing the long art-historical tradition of depicting the Stations, ‘Repetition is Truth’ also offers a broader commentary on the universality of human rights abuses.
