This Pandemic has been life changing for everyone. Many people have suffered very badly, and it continues to be a difficult time on so many levels .

As a painter and visual narrator , one of the more curious sights to emerge over the last few months has been the very inventive masks that people have made, using the most unexpected materials. Modifying and adapting whatever is to hand, in an attempt to keep safe when leaving home.

The result has been an amazing array of videos and photographs on line, which record the unusual as standard or somehow ordinary now.

With this in mind, I wanted to celebrate our inventiveness in an emergency, and mark that moment in society when the eccentric became quite ordinary.
