The studio has been working on a series of windows for St Peter's Anglican Church in East Maitland, NSW for the past three years. In 2016 we installed two double lancet sets to the clerestory, two in 2017 and two more this year, which completes the set of six windows commemorating the six regional Parish Churches in the mother cathedral. And this year we also produced a third double lancet window, shown above, illustrating the Conversion of St Paul on the road to Damascus

As in the earlier windows of this set, I drew inspiration from historical reference points: for St Peter a Baroque sculpture by Pierre Etienne Monnot found in the Church of San Giovanni Lateranno in Rome and for St Andrew a sculpture by the little known artist Domenico Guido in Sant Andrea della Valle in Rome

For the design of the St Paul window I decided it was necessary to cast the image across both lancets, ignoring the stone mullion between. The Conversion of St Paul on the Road to Damascus has been painted by many different artists; a Google search will reveal hundreds. I drew inspiration from both Caravaggio and Ludovico Carracci., combining elements of each painting. The Sword of Truth in the quatrafoil above represents Paul's instrument of martyrdom.
