back of the envelope

The chairs we sat in.

Looking for a starting point, thinking how I could convey quiet absence through drawing and also while having limited resources myself, in isolation, I started to draw empty chairs. Office chair, school chair, park bench and bar stools were replaced by settee, three piece suite and arm chair.

An empty chair can also be a poignant reminder of person no longer with us.

At the beginning of the pandemic there were some difficult times and great uncertainty, there still are, but now there is some normality coming back into the everyday goings on, for society as a whole, shops opening, some children going back to school, some work resuming and non emergency medical appointments and some people have lost people they love.
