'Covid Diaries'

A Celebration of Life

by Artist Michelle Baharier

Monday 22th to Saturday 27th November 2021
Open daily 11am to 5pm 
Private View Tuesday 23rd November, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Bring a Covid Poem to read on Saturday 27th November 4-6pm

 

ALL WELCOME!

Critically acclaimed multidisciplinary artist, poet and Slade alumni Michelle Baharier is displaying work inspired by her own experience of the pandemic. Covid Diaries presents one artist’s perspective, a snapshot in time of the unknown.

Michelle’s partner was hospitalised from covid before the first lockdown and she was forced to quarantine; faced with her partner’s severe illness, her own precarious mental health, a broken washing machine & leaking sink that no plumber would attend to, Michelle kept herself grounded by recording her experience with digital drawing, painting, photography, and by keeping a daily diary.

Michelle’s work expertly brings the human condition to life, letting our emotions flow with her bold use of palette and texture, reflecting our shared experience back at us.

The show includes commissioned portraits of artist Penny Pepper, actress & activist Liz Carr, disabled journalist & editor of the Disability News Service John Pring, disability rights campaigner and member of the House of Lords Baroness Jane Campbell, and live art, performance and video artist Katherine Araniello.

During her week at the gallery, Michelle will be working on handmade limited editions of her diary from March 2020. As the gallery will give her space, time & opportunity to explore her photos & drawings, collecting them into the first of many bookpieces.

The artist’s work exploring the range of human emotions is available for purchase; take home a new image for your living room and/or workspace. Michelle takes commissions and is on site to discuss your requirements.

In 2021 Michelle received awards from the Arts Council England Lottery Fund to create The Walkie Talkies – digital art pieces and a Developing Your Creative Practice grant which is supporting this exhibition.
