Mumsy Rabbit
acrylic and collage on canvas
7.28 x 4.72 in.

In my youth I would cling to my stuffed rabbit when I longed for my mother. Trapped in isolation due to a global pandemic and unable to have physical contact with friends or family, I am reminded of that first feeling of loss. ‘Because I Can’t Hug You’ is a series of small works that act as comfort objects, easing my sense of helplessness and loneliness while separated from those I love.
