‘Work in Progress’ (2020)

“I learned the importance of working as if you have an exhibition deadline, even if you do not. This is especially relevant in maintaining artistic development and output in a time like this when there is not much on. We also discussed the importance of working in a series or producing defined bodies of work, which is something I have always struggled to do.”

It is a gift to be able to share anything we know with each other, to empathise, to listen and to collaborate in finding a way forward, to continue making.
