We have all been affected by the global Covid-19 pandemic. Whether this has been through changes to our lifestyle, our jobs and financial circumstances, our health (both physical and emotional), through loss (of loved ones or strangers) or to the highly visceral environmental ramifications lockdown has had, we have experienced something deeply transformational.
This second body of work has been made as we hesitantly move towards a new but uncertain sense of security or ‘normality’. It has primarily been painted and drawn using local Cornish earth pigments on a variety of salvaged, found and repurposed surfaces. The pieces represent intuitive conversations between myself, the materials and the contradictions of the ongoing global and local situation. As I write this we are entering a second national ‘Coronavirus Lockdown’ in the UK.
