This work represents a place, a group of people and an idea, which were all important to me during the pandemic. The people are a group of my artist and maker friends, who normally meet for monthly gallery visits. The idea emerged once these visits became impossible and we formed a postcard exchange instead.
The place is my garden in South East London where these ceramic fragments and keys had been found whilst digging. I chose to paint them to send out but some of the pieces were too big to fit on a postcard, as they were all painted to actual size, so I continued the series by painting some larger artworks, of which this is one.
It encompasses what I became truly grateful for in this strange and isolating time: my garden and a chance to remain creative with my wonderful friends.
