Chloe Longley

As a visual storyteller, the national ‘Stay Home’ order inspired a set of works exploring loneliness, isolation as well as the everyday moments we all once took for granted before this time spent at home with our family.
A week before we entered the first ‘lockdown’ and before any of us knew what was to come, I started a journal. When the Covid-19 situation worsened, I began logging my days at home.
Now stacked full of screen grabs from zoom calls, stains from pressing flowers collected on daily walks, to do lists, sketches of house plants which began to swamp my room and climbing death tolls each week, I had built a point of reference and reflection for my future pieces.
These ‘Lockdown Journals’, now a series of intimate oil paintings, communicate the confrontations we have all had with ourselves and how our small spaces have become our entire world.
