Shelf 2020

Shelf 2020 I & II are works made during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020.

“Obliged to stay at home for the first few months of the Covid-19 pandemic, my focus was drawn inwards to my domestic situation and the landscape immediately surrounding my home in rural Ceredigion. These small works use odds and ends from my studio and shed, sticks from the woodland in front of my house, and domestic emulsion paint.

Perhaps a ‘shelf’ might be seen as a utilitarian physical and philosophical space to contemplate the nature of things and our relationship to them. A particular place, at a slight remove from the hubbub and noise of the world.”
