My Space my Sanctuary
Since October 2021, Somerset artists Joanna Briar and Jill Davies have used postal exchanges of work to create a visual dialogue of experimental imagery – including drawing with natural pigments and found organic matter; burning, smoking and cutting paper, all directly related to the emotional content of the piece or the place it describes. Building a visual story of their shared experience, documented through the multiple postcard-size pieces they have made together, expresses their experiences of their local landscapes and their growing creative relationship. They have found sanctuary in the natural world and in making/connecting creatively.
Through their collaboration, Joanna and Jill have developed the confidence to take risks, experiment and broaden their creative practice. They were able to emerge from feeling stuck after being isolated and it gave them personal and creative safe-sanctuary.
