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...

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...

Kitchen

 

the hub of family life

the central meeting space

apparently!

Rewind...

kitchen

the hub of grub and stuff

a space of culinary creativity...

of testing 

experimenting

of easy cleaning...

traces of this, that and the other.

nutrition for the mind

and body...

kitchen

the hub of doing

a space to paint

to glue

to fold...

an assemblage of art and life and life and art 

kitchen, studio, gallery.

Plane in Lockdown

Plane...

a surface...

imagined in space.

Plane...

a surface...

locked down...

isolated from space.
