Petri Anderson: Woodland scenes
8 Apr. 2023 - 1 Sep. 2023

Event category: Exhibition

Price: Free with usual admission (Friends: Free)
Location: The Stained Glass Museum, Ely Cathedral
These dramatic woodland vistas are inspired by the woodland habits of Anderson’s Finnish roots and local English woodlands nearby Anderson’s current home in the Chiltern Hills. The scenes are punctuated by vivid depictions of animals, some of which are native - the badger, deer, squirrel and owl, and others more exotic and even mythical – the lynx, lion, and unicorn. These juxtapositions create scenes with natural imagery that is simultaneously familiar and out of place.

Many of these panels have an added political dimension with animals symbolising seismic changes in nation and state, shifts in leadership and power, as well as the global impact of climate change. Anderson employs both traditional kiln-fired glass paints and enamels and acid-etching areas of coloured glass to achieve both finely painted detail and rich colour hues.

Petri Anderson AMGP studied restoration glass painting under Peter Archer and Alfred Fisher in 1989, and in the late 1990s succeeded Archer as head designer and painter at Chapel Studio in Hertfordshire. In 2005 he established his own studio, Mongoose Stained Glass, and undertakes domestic and ecclesiastical commissions as well as restoration work. Anderson's work can be seen across the country in parish churches, cathedrals, private homes, schools, colleges and city livery companies. Liturgical projects include the Pat Salvage memorial window for St. Nicholas Church in Kelvedon Hatch, which received a diocesan award for design, and three windows for St. Andrews Church, Hyde Heath. In recent years his portfolio has taken on a new dimension with work in Japan, Central Asia, Finland and the Caribbean. Petri is an Associate member of the British Society of Master Glass Painters (BSMGP).
