This project was initially started in response to my commute. I began looking at ‘In Between Places’ of trains, train stations and bridges as a way of exploring a sense of liminality, capturing moments on journeys between places. The destination is rendered ambiguous to suggest the sense of intrigue and building anticipation preceding arriving somewhere.
In the context of the corona virus pandemic my theme took on a new resonance whilst my subject matter changed. The paintings produced explore my environment whilst in lockdown, primarily taking inspiration from nature. At the time of making, it is not clear what life will look like as we emerge from lockdown, caught between before and life after the virus.
