These images were made using photocopy transfer on collage. They have been created during the ongoing pandemic in response to the “new normal” of self isolation and social distancing. The call to modify our behaviour and the closure of so many opportunities to interact with each other has lead to a widespread increase in mental health issues. Without the healing effect of others feelings of loneliness and disconnection have left many of us feeling more isolated than ever.
The figure is composed to explicitly acknowledge the boundaries of the image and within her profile a pattern of objects is intended to be suggestive of domesticity. Ultimately she is not trapped but inhabits the space as her own.
