Additionally Mark Vessey tells us about his experience of lockdown. Deciding to take a conscious step back he describes how the time spent alone has enabled him to reflect. Finding himself in New York when the lockdown hit over there, he was able to take stock when he returned. With things slowing down, rather than double down and make more work, he chose to take space for himself.

Living in Brighton it was the sea which provided a major outlet. Everyday he would immerse himself in it. “No two swims are ever the same” he tells me. Describing the experience further as one which was spiritual. Being at one with nature was the tonic he needed to reflect, take stock and return refreshed with a new perspective when the lockdown finished.

Mark Vessey was interviewed on 5 December 2020 as part of the Art Related Noise podcast series with Enter Gallery. His ‘soundtracks‘ release is available from Enter Gallery and was launched in 8 December 2020.

Bringing in familiar imagery and combining it with other cultural icons to create some impactful pop art. Now with two sell out solo exhibitions behind her, she explains how the lockdown had forced her to move away from a successful modeling career into an altogether riskier artistic one. It was a decision that paid off and now her work is an Enter Gallery favorite
