Book Review


"We are so used to hearing and reading words that critique the place of God and spirituality in our contemporary western world but this book is filled with exciting full colour images that demonstrate the creative musings of more than 60 contemporary artists who have reflected on the meaning of life, and produced work in a variety of mediums that explore the place of suffering, the gift of hope and our longing to worship within a 21st Century world.”
Lesley Sutton. Director of PassionArt
“Where is God in our 21st Century world?  is a hugely encouraging book showcasing some of the provocative pieces of visual art brought together through the Chaiya Art Awards. Visual art has its own language and the juxtaposition of these images with sensitive and provocative text by Ann Clifford makes reading the book an inspirational treat. Quotations from a variety of sources are beautifully complimentary.”
John Forrest, Film maker. Founder of the Insight Film Festival. 
Founding producer of BBC Chorister and Songs of Praise School Choir of the Year competitions
“This beautifully produced book is a lasting legacy of an extraordinary event held last Easter at the Oxo Gallery in London. An absolutely open, no-holds-barred call to artists has borne fruit in this remarkable book which has become an artwork in its own right, with its references to poetry, prose and intuitive responses to the art included.  I heartily commend this book.” 
Sophie Hacker, Curator, Artist
"It is a privilege to be featured in this book as part of an incredibly diverse group of artists working in response to the question ' Where is God in our 21st century world?' The text weaves around and through the images inviting readers to explore their own responses to the artworks, and opens up wide-ranging conversations about faith, spirituality and art."
Deborah Tompsett, Winner of Chaiya Art Award
