Description:

Rob a local Anglesea artist, used the time during the Covid-19 lockdown to explore the effects that acrylic paint, his favourite medium, had in droplets of water. He created hundreds of small artist proofs that were then photographed and digitally enhanced. His passion became how to find new worlds of detail in tiny areas.

 

How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

As an older resident living by myself, my passion for this project was my main source of sanity during the Covid-19 lockdown. It gave me a sense of purpose.
