A year before the Covid-19 pandemic held the world on pause, I experienced a very contrasting version of the month April by visiting a close friend of mine in Israel. The lockdown gently forced me to rest and travel mindfully through all precious memories and emotions I felt through places I experienced, people I met and conversations I had a year ago.
The idea of a series consisting of four prints was born. In consequence of the lockdown I limited myself to the material I had at home, which felt both challenging and exciting.
All prints from the series Otherwise April are handstamped with cut foam and screenprint ink on natural cardboard.
I contributed my series to the QuaranZine, a digital community-organised collaboration with the goal of bringing together art during the Covid-19 pandemic. All donations went directly to Covid-19 relief funds. If you like what you see, please take a minute to support a new artist: www.quaranzine.de
