The Divine Sky utilises allegory and performance to tell a complicated history through poiesis, immersive storytelling and photography. This series has taken form during the Covid-19 lockdown period when restrictions to our movements has called for establishing new ways of working and structuring artistic output.This work denotes a process of inscribing and re-inscribing thought through automatic drawing with ink on paper, indigo pigment on fabric, performance to camera, layering and overlaying. An early iteration of work that is yet to be fully realised or even imagined where studio has had to stand in for landscape and landscape has been reconstituted.
