'Not since the paintings of Cecil Collins have I seen work that captures so poignantly the essential purity and innocence of the human being. The Holy Fool is, thank heaven, alive and well in the hand of Greg Tricker.' Jonathan Stedall This book of thirty full-page colour paintings and sculptures was inspired by Greg Tricker's visit to the Catacombs, the ancient Christian burial chambers found beneath Rome dating from the first to the third century AD. These paintings are full of seasonal colour, Greek mythology and Biblical themes going back to the Creation. They are full of life contrasting with more orthodox religious art.
