The first print in the series ‘The Tale of my Long Covid Pony Tail’. The story of Long Covid told with the aid of a hair piece. I am the sitter but it could be anyone. It is a modern day tale of our times and the uncertainty in which we live. I have used Lino and played around with the surface treating it like metal gouging and scratching at it. It is as much about what is happening during the making of the image as it is about the narrative I am trying to convey. Printed on high quality Somerset paper.
