A Walk for Stanley
A project by artist Peter Driver that encompassed a 39 mile walk from the Stanley Spencer Gallery in Cookham, in the north-eastern corner of Berkshire to the Sandham Memorial Chapel, south of Newbury – one of Spencer’s master works.
The 'Walk for Stanley' book includes drawings, woodcut illustrations, photographs, bird sightings and thoughts along Peter's journey.
Update: the book is at the printers. Publication expected July 2019.
“Peter Driver’s art, photography and prose flow like a subterranean river: always moving and contributing to a wider whole with modesty and vigour.
A wonderful book.”
Philip Miles, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Sociology,
University of Bedfordshire, UK.
“Its been a complete joy to see Peter’s work develop since he first showed with us in 2014. Everything he does is so personal, relevant, thoughtful and generous.”
Joanne Bushnell, Director, Aspex Gallery
“Beautiful, poignant and thoughtful. With genuine warmth and gentle humour Peter Driver’s ‘A Walk for Stanley’ feels like a stroll with a much loved companion.”
Rev Kate Bottley, Broadcaster
