"This exhibition desplays William Blake's Book of Job (1825) against new drawing by young Scottish artist David Shrigley. This unique pairing of historical and contemporary illustrations inspaired by the famously ambiguous Old Testament text offers a fascinating look at the machinations of faith and the power of artistic vision in relation to the world of the early nineteenth century and our own times. The distinct styles and world views of these artists produce two remarkable takes on the significance of the Old testament story, whose interpretation remains puzzling and manifold." -- Director's foreword (p. 3)
