Artists Speak – Dealing with Isolation

“I have had a difficult time since the isolation began. I share my studio with 3 other artists, so we have agreed that only one person at a time can be there. This makes for significantly less time in the studio. Of course going to the studio would be considered “non-essential” travel, but since I don’t have a studio at home, I have no choice if I want to do any sculpture. I work in clay and the pieces must be fired in a kiln. Once they have been fired, I have a choice of glazing them and firing them again or using acrylic paint. The work that I prefer to paint I bring home and complete them there. I am working on a new series of pieces that I am quite excited about. The concept is essentially that of different sized spheres erupting out of biomorphic, abstract forms. The colours I’m using with this work are warm earth tones.”
