90 x 50cm
Created during the UK COVID- 19 Lockdown. Two locked perspex cases containing velvet ‘touch’ prints are linked together via a delicate chain and heart shaped padlock.
Confined away from our loved ones Velvet Kiss addresses the parallels between protection and restriction, presence in absence and adapts a lean towards hope and compassion within a time of bleakness and fear.
Over the lockdown period, a version of this work has been released as a limited edition print of 20 in aid of the NHS Stroke Association, with 50% of sales being donated.
