The title of this exhibition references one of the most popular memes of 2020, How it started vs. How it’s going. What originally started as a new year’s resolution to do a portrait a day, took on new meaning when the pandemic hit. Within a few months, my circumstances had changed. Returning to paint brought me joy, discipline and a sense of purpose in these uncertain times. Then there was the instant gratification and connection that came with posting to social media. The resulting works are whimsical visual diary entries of myself, friends and family as we ate our way through the pandemic. Two years on, despite a number of changes and an interstate move, how it started isn’t too dissimilar to how it’s going.
This exhibition is presented under the Little Gallery Emerging Artist Program.
