I’ve been taking part in The Brooklyn Art Library Sketchbook Project during lockdown in 2020. The Sketchbook Project is the “world’s largest library of artists’ books, crowd-sourced from every corner across the globe”.
I like to deconstruct ads and editorials from fashion magazines. Sometimes my collages work, sometimes they don’t, and sometimes they tell a story. I enjoy the whole process, from finding the images, the cutting (which I find challenging, rewarding and weirdly relaxing at the same time), through to the final pasting. My sketchbook is a catalog of my thoughts and feelings during the period of lockdown, reaching a significant milestone in my life, reflecting on the lives of others around the globe, and dreaming of when we can travel again to far away places and vibrant new cities.
