Reconnected now on at the MAC

The Reconnected exhibition at the Museum of Art and Culture Lake Macquarie opened to the public earlier this week. My collage, Life During the Virus, is part of the exhibit.

This is me and the collage on opening day! It was great being there and talking with some of the other artists. There are some really amazing works on display.

If you’d like to see the exhibit it’s on until October 11 at the MAC gallery in Booragul.

Life During the Virus

This is a photo collage I put together recently of some of my favourite photos from the last few months. It’s going to be part of an exhibition next month.

The photos document some of the restrictions and changes that the first months of the pandemic brought to our lives as well as the beauty of Lake Macquarie throughout that time.

During the worst parts of those first months I thought it was important to remind myself that, despite everything, there was still beauty in the world so I focused on going for a walk every day with my camera and photographing the setting sun. We had some truly stunning sunsets and I think those pictures make for an interesting contrast, showing hope and beauty amidst the isolation.

I hope you like the photos. I’ll post a link when the exhibit opens in case anyone would like to go along. It features some really fantastic and inspiring works.

The individual photos are in a gallery below.
