This inspiring collection of over 50 paintings and stone carvings by Greg Tricker portrays the suffering, joy and innocence of St Bernadette, a poor shepherdess who had miraculous visitations from the Virgin Mary at Lourdes in 1858.


These visionary paintings present a radical new image of St Bernadette and Mary in the mystery of their poignantly close relationship amid the vibrant forces of nature, all infused by the Divine Spirit.


Philip Vann explores the background to these at once iconic, earthy, graceful and redemptive paintings, placing the work in the wider context of both the artist's life and the mystical path.
