I created this set of monotypes in response of a collaborative art project put together by Yeovil Creatives members, creating artwork which responding to the theme ‘Solidarity & Kindness’ during the first UK lockdown, March-April 2020.
Connection with people, neighbourhood and nature took a new dimension for me from spring 2020; I worked trought these themes. I proposed to the Liverpool based artist Dorothea Rogers to work with me, and we gave birth to « A prairie » together.
Dorothea decided to go with collage and a poem about bees written by Emily Dickinson. To the artist, the poem is about making things with dreams and hope and hard work. It’s about building habitats in any conditions.
