ART IN LOCKDOWN
Section 1: PEOPLE
Several artists sent us artwork about people – observed or imagined; missed or celebrated – that they have made during lockdown.
“I work with textiles and stitch most of the time. This is my Thank You banner, and a reflection of what we quickly realised we were very lucky to have around us and some of the things that have been going on in our home.”
“I took a series of self portraits at the start of lockdown as I adjusted to not having any subjects to photograph, and spending hours on my own each day whilst trying to stay sane.
“A series of work documenting my life in quarantine, starting at the beginning of the lockdown in the UK on 23rd of March – until today and ongoing. Triggered by isolating alone and spending a lot of time in my house with only my dog as my companion and without accesses to my studio, these works reflect on notions of loneliness, fear, curiosity and self healing. They are an image diary of self observation and self examination during this unusual time of a pandemic.”
