I was  interested here in creating a drawing which will hold viewers attention for longer than an online snapshot.

 

Making my work is often a way of 'digesting' the distressing content that is presented, on which my paintings become visual reflection. 'Mission impossible' was informed by online photographs and videos on Covid-19. I was taken by horrific but profound photographs showing our vulnerability. The ephemeral character of the work is emphasized by the watered down ink marks, very slowly, gradually fading away in the direct, strong sunlight, potentially leaving nothing but reminiscence of what was there before.
