Art in Times of Chaos

After a break from online activity my blog is back up and raring to go. It has been a tough time for everyone and all of us have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Artists have always played an important role in troubled times, from documenting, interpreting and challenging the effects of upheavals to bringing light and peace into chaos. Both the artist and the viewer can benefit from connecting through creativity. To lose yourself for a time in the pleasure of interacting with or creating work is a privilege, but a privilege that should be open to all. Even if you last picked up a paintbrush decades ago in school you can enjoy creating something, whether that be doodling with biros or creating castles with lego. Just play around
