During lockdown it was easy to feel low. I tried to look for hope emerging from the pandemic. The environment was having a bit of a breather and people were taking to the streets to campaign to save our planet. This gave me hope and is what my new body of work is about. The Trojan horse is bringing hope in the form of the next generation, the donkey carries the bees that keep the cycle of life turning and the sacred cow delivers acorns symbolising new beginnings. The elephant is releasing hope.
