At this moment in time the effects of COVID-19 are still being parsed into the public consciousness. All the artists here were affected by the lockdown either in deeply personal terms or more peripherally and while some work may appear to be benign, all the paintings, sculptures, prints etc are encoded with our creative DNA, our highs and lows from the last three years. Art never sits still. Its constant motion demonstrates a need for an emotional outlet, a guide for understanding reality but it primarily represents the desire to share our personal experiences.
