 We are living through strange and difficult times at the moment as we are in the grip of the coronavirus and just starting to ease out of lockdown. It has however been an opportunity to spend more time concentrating on producing new art. I have taken part in the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week for the past 5 weeks and have completed two collages, one of which reflects some of the changes wrought by the pandemic. I seem to be working more and more in acrylics these days and I'm certainly using my fingers more! I'm currently working on a landscape of the Vosges.
I've just heard that one of my collages "The Planet strikes back" has been selected as one of 60 winners in the Covid Dreams competition organised by Artavita, based in Santa Barbara, California. The virtual exhibition can be seen by clicking on the link below.
This collage has also been selected for the Ferens Exhibition in Hull.
