«and so we wait» has in many ways been my artistic response to months of lockdown, uncertainty, fear, but also hope. Waiting for the world to go back to what it was before, waiting to get back into it. The 16-piece cross stitch work took 13 months to complete and gave me a sense of purpose as well as adding structure and meaning to my days. Having such a large scale project helped me make sense of a situation that was unlike anything I had ever faced before. When the wait is so uncertain and abstract, the horizon in front of you changes every day, some days you can almost touch it, some days it’s obscured by heavy fog. I don’t think I am done waiting yet, but by completing this project at least I have arrived somewhere.
