From Paul. “I thought about the forget-me not, as a symbol of hope and remembrance and used my drawings of this flower to illustrate a poetic stanza I wrote in response to the pandemic: "Her circumference watched, As countries heard immunity, Forget us not, We shall touch tomorrow." It’s a deviation from my usual focus, one that I continue to investigate as I attempt to decipher my place and function as an artist in a changed world. It’s a pleasure to see these posters appear (via the web) in #Aberdeen and I hope that my contribution invites a passerby to contemplate hope and freedom from this overwhelming tragedy”
