March 2020: Art in progress…

Art making in March has been affected, as with every other aspect of life, by the COVID-19 outbreak. It’s also made me think more about waste/value of objects, such as junk mail and food packaging, in the context of national panic-buying for food.

This long line makes the best of it and is dotted with silver linings in the form of foil wrappers and milk bottle tops. It was a joy to escape into and will be off to a new home soon.

Switching to a wholly domestic-focused life means not only more time for art-making but it has also give me new perspectives on things around the house. I’m making the most of the sunshine and experimenting with painting items with a porous surface with cyanotype photographic chemical… The eggs now hold miniature sea/skyscapes!
