Climbing Out of the Hole

The title is actually optimistic. There is trepidation, the wolf is always there, lurking and hungry, ready to take you down at the first sign of weakness. But, I have my hand on the handle and the door is firmly shut, the lights are on and we will carry on.

This is a start. And we have to start somewhere. Watch this space as I hope to create some works for a new exhibition that will inevitable explore the events and consequences of the past tumultuous year.
