Work statement:

“Prison time is slow time. You do what you can to keep going.” Red, The Shawshank Redemption.

I felt the same about lockdown time. Time slowed down and it made me notice ordinary household objects that I otherwise would not have, represented by “Still Life in Colour”. And making work with whatever was available was my way of keeping going during a challenging time, typified by “Facing
the Unknown”.

Still Life in Colour: speaks of noticing the small things and being grateful for them. Of how beauty can be found in the mundane. Of perspective and how you can view things in a positive light.

Facing the Unknown: taken during the height of the lockdown, it represents for me how unclear and uncertain things were, and still are, generally and personally.
