Newcastle Art Gallery - Novel Connections Zine
Watercolour and Acrylic on Paper.
I was lucky enough to have my work selected for the Novel Connections Zine at Newcastle Art Gallery.
This was a collective of projects created by local artists in the Newcastle area to share their experience of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. Telling the stories of social isolation hopes to bring us together in a space of support, wellbeing, and mentorship as we find ourselves in this difficult period.
My work titled 'Uncomfortable' shares how this time has felt for me, and how disconnected I feel from the life I knew before it. It has been a time of introspection and self-development to move into a new lifestyle and optimise how I can get through it on my own two feet. This is easier said than done, and joining this zine has been a relaxing experience to acknowledge that we are not struggling alone.
