Contemporary Interpretations of Holy Trinity Glass, Melford by Noel Myles

Noel Myles came to live in Sudbury over 20 years ago. Shortly after arriving he went to see the medieval stained glass windows in Holy Trinity Church in Melford. He found them captivating.

His eye eventually came to rest on two small panels of glass that seemed to make no sense at all. Heads were cut through; pieces of text were intermingled with faces. It took a while for Myles to realise that what he thought were medieval abstract windows were, in fact, made later from found broken fragments; possibly from the time when much of the glass was destroyed by iconoclasts.

These windows gave Myles the idea of making his own compositions by overlaying pictures of pieces of glass from different windows and making them into prints on paper. They endeavour to have the luminosity of light shining through stained glass.

The mounting of this exhibition in the Mill Tye ‘Virtual' Gallery that has been established during the shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak, coincides with a fund raising project in aid of the restoration of the stained glass windows in Holy Trinity Church themselves. For more information click here.

The Mill Tye Gallery and Noel Myles will jointly donate 10% of the sales price of each print to this fund.

The prints can be purchased through our on-line shop and will be posted directly, or delivered locally without the need to visit the gallery (within a 20 mile radius of the gallery).

Prices for all prints are £185 each +p+p VIEW AND BUY PRINTS
