City of Jersey.
At this time, the effects of COVID-19 are still being analyzed in the public consciousness. All of the artists here have been affected by the lockdown either in deeply personal terms or in more peripheral ways and while some work may appear benign, all paintings, sculptures, prints etc. are encoded with our creative DNA, our ups and downs of the last three years. Art never stands still. Its constant movement demonstrates a need for an emotional outlet, a guide to understanding reality, but above all it represents the desire to share our personal experiences.
