This drawing has been a way for me to explore the reflections, the silence, the fears and vulnerability I went through during lockdown as well as the physical impossibility of doing anything about it.
The act of sitting and quietly listening to the murmurations of starlings seemed to me to encapsulate what this strange time meant to me.
This piece has also been for me, an exploration in the use of coloured pencils. I love using this medium as I find it is very "domestic", it does not smell or stain and therefore it is perfect to be used inside and it underlines the domesticity of this drawing.
The study and exploration of tone and light is, as always, an important part of my practice and looking outside towards the light is for me a symbol of hope.
