Like many other artists, I didn’t get access to my studio and I was working at home. During lockdown I documented our family life, the news that we watched on TV and all the actualities I could gather and find during this isolated, strange time. When I finally got access to my studio, I pulled all the sketches from lockdown and started to create new paintings from objects I drew and collected. This painting is my response to the new normal, the life we have to accept and learn to live through it.
