With the world in turmoil, I find I'm turning inward more, focussing on still life painting in my practice, painting 'A Still Life.' I don't think this means I'm withdrawing from the world entirely. I think it's my way of reflecting on what we value as a society. I found this quote in Rebecca Solnit's book 'Whose Story is This?': "...Because political action is about protecting the vulnerable and the beautiful. Paying attention to those qualities are part of that project."
