In conversation with Yermine Richardson

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?
Yermine: I’m doing great! Don’t get me wrong, I know what’s happening in the world, but I took this surreal moment to know more about myself — think how can I be a better person and better at my work, to expand my Caribbean galaxy, and connect with people who work with different materials that made me see beyond my self-imposed limitations.

KALTBLUT: What have you been doing to pass your time in quarantine?
Yermine: I’ve been researching and experimenting to push the boundaries of my style: new formats and new materials to keep expanding the diversity of my work. I’m also making design objects with wood and ceramics and Glicée prints.

KALTBLUT: How has the situation affected your work?
Yermine: It’s harder to get supplies but also a good opportunity to be more creative with the materials I have.
