Saturday 8th May 2020 - Until Isolation period is over (UK)
Isolation - "the process or fact of isolating or being isolated."
The exhibition showcases artworks relating to our present circumstance of being in Isolation.
Themes of hope, despair and reality are highlighted through varied mediums.
This collection of artworks will act as an archive and give insight into our creative individual minds during this time.
We created Art.
I would like to express my appreciation to all of the artists that contributed and our viewing audience.

"The Pressure of Form and Trace"
by Laura Honeybun
"I have been inspired by the Fluxus movement, a technique using objects and the human body within a performance. This is reference to Pina Bausch's dance "Rite of Spring". The dancers use natural elements to create imprints on the surface of their skin and clothing. The video is an improvisation of myself, as the dancer. Familiarising myself within the environment, experimenting with forms and traces that my body and the welsh soil produces."

"A quick two day inspirational painting from my imagination- started as a normal forest in the day and developed into the results."

Acrylic on canvas
"In my works, I color life with my dream world. Sometimes as it should be, sometimes as I thought it should be. History is reflected to us in every area with different forms and symbols. As we paint these reflections, the world of colors leads us to eternity."
by Phil Brunt
"In this difficult time of isolation I think people are really stepping back and noticing their surroundings.
For me I have always believed some of the simplest things we have around us give the most pleasure, and one of those things in this beautiful weather is Wisteria.
This picture was inspired in my walks during this time in the Vale of Glamorgan."

"Bloom where you are"
by Angela Doble
"My garden is tucked inside the 13th-century town walls of Conwy, which means tourists strolling round 20 feet above our heads. At present, though, the walls are empty, and so I sit in total peace with my drawing pad, watching the development of the fruit trees, from buds to blossom to tiny fruit. I hope to continue this through to fruiting and autumn leaves - if I can keep up the momentum once the lockdown is over!"

Acrylic on MDF
"In my studies, it is seen that the colors and hues blend together and a geometry of the well-known geometric shapes is formed consciously and spontaneously. Geometrical and calligraphic compositions were used in the studies using derivatives of a color, and the feeling of creating a space without depth was desired and the overlapping colored geometric shapes were determined with black contours."
"Satellite Image 1.001"
by Ellwyn Male
"Spring Morning - Penarth"
by Joe Rhodes
Oil on board
"This piece is the first in a series I am working on depicting life in places I have been to and love, celebrating life before social distancing. The original concept was to capture the picturesque quality of the setting, produced from photos and sketches, with a view to imparting lighting information that conveys Contre Joure, which is a driving force in my artwork."

"Prior to lockdown I had been struggling with severe anxiety which has had a profound effect on my life.
During lockdown I have been able to embrace the quietness and solitude of the outdoors.
I decided to illustrate a subject everyday that I saw on my daily walk relating to nature.
This has given me the opportunity to relax and appreciate everything that we have already in the natural world."
by Katie Thomas
"First in a series I'm starting creating my own concept art of gods and/or goddess based off the astrological myths and legends of the planets of out solar system. Starting off with the closest to home, Luna the goddess of the Moon."

"On the ignorance, belatedness and laxity about safety precautions; before and during the pandemic."
by Yetkin YAĞCI
"Trying not to think about the Corona Virus is actually being exposed to thinking constantly. Instead of silencing, suppressing and fighting against the thoughts of people in social isolation, they should accept the situation. It is very important to accept the existing situation.
Accepting isolation would be the best decision for humanity."
