Exhibition: 'The space left behind.' by anthony marn, weavers factory.

When he was 5 years old his mother committed suicide. Eight years later his father did the same. In his moving new exhibition ‘The Space Left Behind’, Anthony Marn explores how art can become pivotal to a person’s grieving process.

His exhibition at the Weavers Factory is the very first step towards creative enlightenment for Anthony, a crucial turning point where he begins to paint what is truly inside his heart. And for anyone viewing his work, whether they’ve experienced the heartbreaking tragedy of suicide or not, they cannot fail to be moved by Anthony’s paintings. We’ve all been affected by the loss of someone we love, and the aching space that is left behind. - Julian Bovis, Curator.
