Lockdown traces - Art from a distance...

the physical, digital, imagined and found...

It is...

experimental

a document

an index

time...

slow...

meandering...

changing

growing

spreading...

art and life and life and art

solitary and shared

It is not...

art in lockdown...  

It is...

art of lockdown...

unlocked 

not about... 

not inspired...

not locked down.

It is of one space but, many places

collected...

created...

appropriated...

noticed...

pondered...

thought...

No Exit... (2020).

tissue paper and graphite 1700 x 800 mm (approx). Photo documentation. isolation... Artwork created from a situation of social distancing. The front door is now an uncrossable boundry. Tissue paper becomes a delicate wrapping, a safe seal from the outside world.

a photo capture to memorialise the tissue remains after the removal from door. working against spatial problems... utilising momentary free space before it becomes shared family space. time, moments, isolation.

Front door

the threshold between me and the outside world...

No exit

Wrapped in tissue paper; the material that I use to delicately store away my most precious things... 

is now the material, storing me, away from everything beyond.  

I carefully build... 

tissue over door, a cocoon like protector.

feeling my way into every bend and fold...

remembering shape and form through touch.  a mark of time with graphite and fingertips.

What soft light through yonder letter box...
