RRP £50 Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Rachel Howard, Repetition is Truth – Via Dolorosa at Newport Street Gallery, London in February 2018. The show at Newport Street Gallery is the first UK exhibition of Howard’s series of paintings, ‘Repetition is Truth – Via Dolorosa’. Commissioned by the Murderme collection and produced between 2005 and 2008, the series takes inspiration from the Stations of the Cross, ‘Via Dolorosa’ being the path taken by Jesus to Mount Calvary. Whilst referencing the long art-historical tradition of depicting the Stations, ‘Repetition is Truth’ also offers a broader commentary on the universality of human rights abuses.
