My artist’s impression of Covid19

As I’m not drawing at any live events during the UK’s Covid 19 lockdown I’ve been sketching a few ideas in my studio as to the possible ‘look’  of the virus. Here’s a detail from my first impression, titled, ‘Before the Wise’ [full drawing follows beneath it]


But, by the time I upload this, we all know it will have changed so I can never work out if this was an accurate depiction.

Victor Vasarely – his part in my Artrising

Blanc / Black
Tic  /  Tac
Plip  /  Plop

Noir / Black

Space – the biggest gap
Life – the hardest trap

Exchange – the first start
Rearrange – the way of being

Victor – today’s weather
Vasarely – halves together

Once you can communicate,
Speak your worth.

Once you can draw,
Add your values.

Once you understand,

Some of the tracks to Belle Isle
Appear like petal falls,
Their gathered pattern
In ever-flux

Laws of wave and particle dance
Create a mind flow distraction
Whilst the Tick Tocks
The Plip Plops and
Life rocks
From each wake to sleep.

Never the parting heralded
Never the arrival stifled.

Heart  /  Soul


A circle of dots appear as animated
but blink, fast enough, and all are still.

A life seems punctuated by events
but live long enough and life becomes nil.

Vasarely would suggest that all is a plastic in motion
that we animate, along with all other energized forms.

A heart beat away.
Co-ordinated impulses set to rhythms
We eat to feed.

What we know we cannot say.
We just grow
To fit some need.
