Andy Parsons: Healing The Nation

I was in the middle of a UK Tour when theatres had to close due to lockdown - and the tour was called 'Healing The Nation' - so that title worked out well.

It will turn out to be the longest tour ever, taking 3 years to complete, and as the tour has gone on there's been less and less healing and more and more of the opposite. Admittedly, I could have changed the title but it...

Double Dutch: The Secret Language of Dutch Still Life Painting

Speaker: Lynne Gibson

Banquets and breakfasts celebrate an abundance of foodstuffs. Could the curl of lemon peel, platter of oysters, kraakware bowl of blemished fruit or spiced meat pie warn of the dangers of gluttony and pleasures of the flesh? Vanitas paintings display treasured possessions. If we look closely, however, the pocket-watch, the fading bloom and, more explicitly, the human skull might hint that consciences are troubled by such ostentation.
