Ever since Covid-19 restrictions had been imposed in March, I’ve missed seeing and doing issues I take pleasure in within the metropolis. Individuals-watching, cab rides, the normalcy of social interactions at eating places, cafés, outlets, the quick tempo of the metropolis – they’re elements important to my artwork apply. It has been an uninspiring time. Like everybody else, I’ve felt like I used to be in the midst of an apocalypse, listening to about pure disasters, man-made disasters, blasts, politics fuelled by faith and God is aware of what else.
I’ve felt largely dysfunctional by the previous few months. And I’ve turned my eye to things and issues at dwelling that I’ve collected or purchased whereas travelling. I assume it’s my means of wanting again on higher occasions. I accumulate totally different sorts of scissors; they’re very attention-grabbing as a useful object and a chunk of design. Two elements should work collectively with a purpose to be of any use — like all good partnership.
One factor led to a different and I ended up drawing totally different variations of dysfunctional scissors: scissors that aren’t actually scissors. The drawings make one really feel uncomfortable and helpless the way in which I’ve felt dysfunctional by the pandemic.
