STILL

Art portfolio- my work, Studio news/blog

Two of my recent works: “Neighbourhood watch” and “Shit could be worse” are included in an online group exhibition titled: STILL (18 June – 8 July 2020)

Shit could be worse 81 x 71 cm Cotton thread and rubber 2020

STILL is the third in the Everard Read galleries’ series of online group exhibitions. This latest group show compromises works primarily created by invited and gallery artists during lockdown, when most artists didn’t have access to their studios, often having to adjust both their working methods and world views.

STILL references notions of ‘stillness’: from formal still life studies, to a slowing down in quiet contemplation. This exhibition imagines humankind’s resilience and perseverance during an unprecedented time of uncertainty.

STILL presents a variety of responses that explore ephemerality, nostalgia, wistfulness, beauty and order as well as chaos and turbulence. – from the Gallery newsletter

Feeling Fragile

“Fragile” 82 x 73 cm Cotton thread and rubber. 2020 Private collection

The photograph below was taken in December 2019

In this photo my father-in-law is giving a demonstration to his son and his grandsons on how to prune a rose. Roses were my father-in-law’s favorite flower, and whenever I will look at the roses again I will think of him, because he passed away this morning.  He did not pass away due to the virus, but because of the virus no family member was with him the time he left this world.

In other news…..Last week our cat was hit by a car.

She has a broken pelvis, but I am relieved to report that she is a very good patient and it seems that she is on her way to recovery.
