Artwork by Christianne Heal

“The craving for colour is a natural necessity just as for water or fire. Colour is the raw material indispensable for life. At every era of his existence and his history, the human being has associated colour with his joys, his actions and his pleasures”.
- Fernand Léger, On Monumentality and Colour.

Sunlight 1 1996

is a collage by Cambridgeshire artist Christianne Heal.

This artwork has been chosen by Amnesty Ely City Group for their 2021 fundraiser!

This is my interpretation of being confined in prison with sunlight filtering through the bars of the cell. I was inspired to create it after reading a column written by Terry Waite, who was held hostage for 1,763 days. He wrote: 'I learned to be grateful for simple things. That Christmas day the electric light had failed, as it often did, and I sat in the dark throughout the day with just a small candle to give me light. It was wonderful when dawn broke to see a small beam of light find its way through a gap in the shutters that covered the window in my cell. I extinguished the candle and the sunbeam illuminated the whole room with a soft, gentle glow.' This card costs £1.50 for one and £4.00 for three plus package and postage. It is 10cm x 15cm.

Healing Waves

As you sit with me you may experience waves of healing energy. As you see from this image, healing waves come in many forms, sometimes warm and sometimes cool, and may help you to rebalance your energy.

Christmas Tree

The Christmas Tree is an emblem of our celebration of this annual festival. Colours in this image reflect the variety of our emotional responses to our encounters with our family and friends at this time, which we will explore in my Christmas workshop. For more information see the Workshops tab.

This image reflects my multi-faceted approach to therapy, just as light is refracted through stained glass windows.
