Psychosis – 2021

Pen on paper (over pencil) H25 x W14.6 cm

Coming out of major surgery I experienced episodes of extreme psychosis. As it occurred during Covid lockdown in the Hospital, I was not allowed any visitors or contact with anyone not connected with my recovery. My only contact with the outside was via my i phone. I was understandably obsessed with my phone. I realized , however, that whenever I viewed it, I was looking through a window, seeing a world of hundreds of thriving bodies – all had contracted Covid. It was Spencer Tunick meets Keith Haring in a delusionary Dante-esque death dance.
