Covid Lockdown has been difficult for me as an artist. It has made me challenge the place of the arts and particularly my practice. Whilst I’m still predominantly a painter at heart, the recent inaccessibility of gallery formats has only built on my previous endeavours to take my artwork into the environment and collaborate with other art forms. I find myself looking back to my art student days where I used photography and Super 8mm film to make art and I feel excited to try this once more. Collecting natural sounds, manipulating found objects, using natural materials and making the landscape my ‘gallery’ is something I’d like to try more of.
