About The Exhibition

Quarantena is selection of drawings I did last year during the first lockdown. It was very strange to see London so empty like in a post-apocalyptic film, it's very surreal. The idea of being alone felt very real to me. I love space and quietness, but this was different. Was it loneliness?
A combination of geometric shapes and vibrant colours to create beautiful spaces, I then added a human silhouette to emphasise the feeling of isolation.
We long for things to ease up so we can go back to living our lives once more, but we also know that what we know as normal isn't what we want to get back to.  Our mental health is something that has become important to us, prioritising things that matter, and it is my hope that our future will be one that reflects this. Being kinder to each other, being more aware of how we affect the person next to us, that is what matters. We give each other hope, just by occupying the same space.
