A Bedtime Story #6 2020 (C-type print traditionally hand coloured with oil paint)
During the last year my fear of leaving home and mental health conditions have been heightened, currently leaving me confined to bed every day. Pre covid I had what felt like the luxury of creating self-portraits within the whole of my bedroom and leaving home not often, but when well enough with my partner.
I love daisies but feel afraid and unable to visit them. This self-portrait depicts my experience of building the courage to gather daisies from our front garden, and included them within this piece. It was the first time I’d been alone in the garden for more than a year, so the experience left me feeling fragile, to depict my anxiety I stuck the ‘Fragile’ tape and a plaster upon my skin.
