SELF ISOLATION SELF PORTRAIT, 2020 | household dust | height 62 mm
Made as part of a project I am planning called Future Gathering, which is in response to the coronavirus crisis. This self portrait was started on 27th March, my 58th birthday. This is the first of many little dust figures I am hoping to make in the coming months, whilst I observe the imposed social distancing. As part of #artistsupportpledge, which was started by @matthewburrowsstudio I am offering to make dust figures of those that are interested. Each will cost £200 (+p&p). I will initially keep each commissioned figure so they can be displayed together for Future Gathering, an exhibition that will take place after the current crisis is over. Everyone who commissions a figure will be invited. After the figures have been exhibited they will be sent to those who commissioned them.
Each artist involved in #artistsupportpledge is selling work for no more than £200 and for every £1000 made, pledges to spend £200 on another artists work.
The next dust portrait in the series is of Pete. He will be joining me – in dust form – at the Future Gathering exhibition, at a date yet to be determinined.
