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.

Bold, graphic, often psychedelic and full of energy. This is the work of our latest guest Poppy Faun. Inspired by the 60’s and 70’s this comes across in her work. The images she creates, very much form a bridge between the eras. Talking to Art Related Noise she discusses her passion for that time, her use of collage and digital and how social media is a narrative which influences her work.
