Bubbled

 

The last year has brought new focus on our closet relationships. Those few people in our bubble have been the only ones we’ve seen and we’ve gotten to know them in ways we may not have imagined before. The way afternoon light hits a cheekbone, how they’re reflected in the light of the computer screen during working hours, across the sofa for late night sitcom binges. These works may not have been made in lockdown, but in different ways we see how we’re kept apart and brought together in this series of evocative portraits in paint and textile.    

 

 

About Screen Time

With the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve moved the annual Artist Project show to a nine-week series of online exhibitions, running April 1 - June 2, 2021. Every Thursday at noon, a new themed exhibition launches featuring seven artists with a daily artist feature on our social media channels. From painting and drawing, to sculpture, prints and photography, the shows will support an incredible breadth of work, all available for sale directly from the artists.  During this time when we’re spending so much time at home, consider supporting an independent artist and treating yourself to a fresh perspective with an original work of art.
