An interview taken from our June Issue. In this special issue, we wanted to give light to artists, especially illustrators and painters, to know how to quarantine time affected their lives and their process. We wanted to showcase a different story, different arts to give a voice and platform for these creators.
KALTBLUT: It’s been almost 2 months since self-isolation has been enforced worldwide, how are you feeling? Ally: It’s been tough. Most days have blurred together and you realize it is already May. I think it is a difficult time, but trying to make the most of it and stay positive.
KALTBLUT: What have you been doing to pass your time in quarantine? Ally: A lot of research for my doctoral project and been taking part in a-couple residencies and artist initiatives. Other than that, I have been watching a lot of 90 Day Fiancee.
KALTBLUT: How has the situation affected your work? Ally: I was originally going to have a lot of projects and exhibitions scheduled to commence this spring but they have been put on the back-burner for now, given the limitations and current situation.
