I am currently shielding for twelve weeks and in my home, we have all had to make adaptions to adjust to this pandemic, although, at least, currently, we are all well. I’ve been recalling many of the good words our dear friend and talented artist Carolyn Hall Young shared with us, not least ‘in any given situation we can always choose, hope over fear‘ – let’s all choose hope.

I am aware there are many others also in a similar situation at the moment and I felt it would be a good idea to create an interview, reflecting these times with stunning imagery. This is a new series of interview with mobile photographers and artists discovering what they’re creating and how in these difficult times. Our fourteenth interview is with talented mobile photographer, Fiona Christian from East Sussex, England, UK.  She reminds us that if we cling to hope whilst living in the unknown we can in some ways defy the destruction and suffering that is going on around us. It helped me to recall a quote by Patrisse Cullors, one of the founders of Black Lives Matter, spoken in an entirely different time and context “provide hope and inspiration for collective action to build collective power to achieve collective transformation, rooted in grief and rage but pointed towards vision and dreams”. I feel it’s also as relevant to what we’re all dealing with now and how we at TheAppWhisperer continue to acknowledge hope and grief and continue to strive to support each and everyone one of you. Enjoy!

Today, we are publishing our ninth interview in our new series, Hope in Adversity. One that’s based around art, artists and isolation during the midst of Covid-19. This deeply compassionate interview is with talented mobile artist Joy Barry, it reflects both on how art can represent the body and how it makes itself felt, throughout and within our bodies. Barry’s tender attention to the complexities of human emotion, and the compassion it coaxes from clear-eyed perception enables her to create art whilst fully conversant that love, inevitably holds pain.  Enjoy!

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 22 March 2020

22 March 2020, Mother’s Day, England, “fear educates our care for each other – we fear a sick person might be made sicker, or that a person’s life might be made even more miserable and we do whatever we can to protect them because we have a fear a version of human life in which everyone lives only for themselves. I am not the least bit afraidd of this fear, for fear is a vital and necessary part of life“, observed poet Anne Boyer. This week, like many of us, I’ve immersed myself in art, both written and visual. I found myself, once more, drawn to Bleak House by Charles Dickens, throughout the novel many illnesses are depicted, none more so, or more profound than smallpox. Dickens demonstrated an exceptional grasp of disease, he demonstrated the unique ability to offer fear as a motivator, in order to convince people to change their ways of living. In the novel one of the characters contracts the disease in a graveyard and passes it on to two others, one who nearly dies and the other who is scarred for life. But it was clear that avoidance of graveyards was not enough to prevent the spread of this disease. Other factors played a part, miasma – bad air – or poisonous gas from rotting organic matter was suspected. However, what was very clear was the disease spread from person to person. Self-imposed quarantine became a theme of two of the characters, “keep her out, Charley, if you love me truly, to the last! Charley, if you let her in but once, only to look upon me for one moment, as I lie here, I shall die“. Quarantine is emphasised repeatedly during the characters illness, to which she refers to it as ‘contagion’. There’s a juxtaposition between art and medicine throughout the book, this is deliberate, Dickens knew that the art we create offers far more than respite, it is a tool enabling us to physically and mentally gain perspective not only in troubling times but throughout our lives. Stay safe and love your mothers from afar today.
