Lockdown Morning Chorus: garden office exhibition

Movement, a marvellous new exhibition of paintings by Pennines-based artist and shedworker Alex Jabore, has just opened at Nantwich Museum. It combines her focus on ballet with her love of British wildlife which has recently taken a very shedworkingesque turn. Here's what she says about her series Lockdown Morning Chorus which forms a major part of the exhibition:

"My studio is in the garden with bird-feeders outside the windows," she says. "I thought I would fill my lockdown by painting my companions in isolation.  There is a great comfort in nature continuing oblivious to these strange times, busts of colour and life. With roads quieter and everyone at home suddenly birdsong seemed to be everywhere." 

Here's an example of her work, Blue Tit Star.

 And here is her appealing studio in the garden.

A strong recommendation for all those of you in hailing distance of Nantwich.
