Creepy art images inspired by the covid-19 lockdown

During the strange days of lockdown this year, we have all been looking for new ways to pass the time. For some people that is learning new things, for others, it has been to spend time doing the things we love. For me, it was to create some creepy art images!

Capturing the emotion

I wanted to create a series of images that would summarise the mix of emotions I have been feeling. In general, I feel I have coped well with the change of lifestyle. I have really enjoyed spending extra time with my family. Especially as we have not had the stress of everyday life weighing us down. That does not mean that I haven’t had my fair share of anxiety over the situation.

The seven stages of lockdown

The different emotions that people are feeling have been likened to those people feel when they are grieving. This has inspired this series of seven pieces of art.

It was not my intention to make creepy art images, but I did want to capture the feeling of uncertainty, paranoia, and anxiety. So by default they do have an eery feeling to them.

Time and Place

I also wanted to incorporate a sense of place and time into this series, by including elements of my day to day life that has changed. For example I have read more books in a couple of months than I have in about 10 years! I have loved that I have had more (guilt free) time to just stop and read a book.

There have also been reports that people are having more to drink during these uncertain times. And I won’t lie, with no early mornings we have also been tempted to have a mid-week drink!
