How are you doing? No, I mean how are you REALLY doing? It’s OK to be honest, we’re all friends here, we won’t judge. Let’s be honest, 2020 has been a wild roller coaster, and we haven’t quite got to the end of the ride. When we started, things were relatively normal, but as the ride started to speed up we suddenly started wearing masks and everything around us began to look strange. In the meantime, a new IG account has popped up called Fashion For Bank Robbers, celebrating everything masks. And, as a bonus, their creative face coverings seem to sum up every 2020 art world situation….
How you will rock up to your first art party when this is all over
While we want to be dressed to kill, we also want to dress safe too. This seems like the perfect compromise, I mean, it is definitely worthy of a Vogue cover at least…
When we’d rather stay in bed today
While we could sit behind our laptops and get to work, staying in bed is so much more fun right now. Working from home was OK at first, but it’s beginning to drag now, and our beds are so comfy!
When you’ve spent too much time in front of the screen
You know, when the whole day was zoom call after zoom call after zoom call and nobody will leave you alone. That blue light got us looking like an alien…
When yet ANOTHER art fair got cancelled
When you feel like the art world is over, we could be mature about it. But why do that when you can stick a tongue (or several tongues) out in the world that’s grinding it to a halt.
When you can’t be dealing with humans today…
The perfect outfit for disengaging with the world. Sorry?! You want me to follow up on that buyer? Can’t you see, I’ve checked out for today…
When you’re inside but still feeling cute
Just because most of the world only sees us behind a screen or a mask, doesn’t mean we can’t glam up. Grab some sequins and stick on those eyelashes, you deserve to feel cute!
When you are at one with nature
Many of us are embracing our gardens and green spaces like never before. Better still, one up-side of the coronavirus pandemic is a drop in global pollution. Yippee!
When you finally reach that level of peace and calm
Admittedly, it seems impossible, but some people have got there. This can’t last forever, and things will eventually have to go back to normal. So, in the meantime, why not relax and put your head in the clouds. You’ll feel much better.
