I was asked to produce work for Deakin Universities Verandah Literary & Arts Anthology Journals’ 2020 Cabinet of Curiosities. The theme was “art during disaster” and I created an illustrative piece called ‘physical vs social distancing’.
The aim of the piece is to highlight the often-unrecognised toll words and labels can take on our mental health. The use of bright and cheerful colours in the physical distancing are to reflect the positives of still being able to connect with friends and family. The darker hues of the social distancing part of the artwork invites depict the bleakness felt by those experiencing isolation amidst spiralling into a deep depression due to the global pandemic.
