Painting Installation at the William Foy Cell, Redhouse Cymru, Merthyr Tydfil.
Still on (March 2015).
The Ladies and Gentlemen of Society, mean-spirited, misogynistic, murderers and deviants all are in a cell awaiting Judgment.
The Merthyr iron master Robert Crawshay's tomb bears the legend 'God Forgive Me'.
For those in the cell laden with guilt, He could well be the only one that will.
The name of Redhouse Cymru invokes the red flag of social justice first raised at Merthyr.
It is fitting then to put the 'great and good' under lock and key here.
'God Forgive Us' is Pontypridd based artist Anthony Rhys' second installation in the William Foy Cell this year and includes 12 paintings, many of which are previously unseen. Soundscape by Tom Ware.
Redhouse is at the Old Merthyr Town hall and is open Monday to Saturday 8:30am — 5.30pm.
