Solastagia was drawn during the first lockdown, it is a response to the distress caused by uncontrollable forces in our lives today, pandemics, climate change and the loss of our natural world due to extreme weather and the destruction caused by man.  The term Solastagia comes from professor Glenn A. Albrecht’s new concept regarding our emotions in the age of the Anthropocene, Solastagia is the home sickness you have at home.  Nature has always provided solace , and for me its trees, and to draw , the act of making art all bring solace.  This drawing is my tactile memories of  tree bark, drawn from memory while cocooning with my father in my childhood home.
