Bridging Disconnectedness

Who would have ever imagined that we would be a part of a generation that experiences an epidemic? Truly take time to reflect, cherish and be thoughtful in navigating your new path forward.


 

I find the idea of disconnectedness quite ironic in that during being disconnected in isolation given Covid-19 Level 5 restrictions and the various degrees of social distancing experienced through until level 1, the circumstances have presented the opportunity for many to become reconnected in numerous other ways.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with my career, I managed an art gallery for several years managing my artist practice on the side. Mid 2019 I felt I had outgrown the challenges within this role and stepped straight into corporate art consulting position working on my practice after hours. In April, I commenced a new chapter, my art practice is now in focus, and I practice as an independent art consultant on a project related basis.


Within the coming months, I will share exciting news and happenings as well as insights into my studio practice, projects you can try out and updates in the art world. For me, the time of reflection has brought on cultivating online engagement which further shares, fosters and bridges 'disconnectedness' via online platforms in an ever-changing world in which we need to adapt in at times, and in other times, grow. 



Sincerely,

JMLR
