“I have started drawing within circles like this in an attempt to capture snippets of my mood. To start, I try to empty my mind of everything and just notice feelings in my body. I use these feelings and sensations to guide my initial design. The process eventually becomes a little more conscious but the initial marks seem to reflect something of my internal world. This one [Time, above] is a reflection of the monotony of weeks during lock-down, with no days out, family gatherings, or other events to look forward to, as well as thoughts about life and death that are impossible to escape from right now.” [Felicity Williams]
Self-doubt, watercolour and ink on paper, 15 x 21cm, March 2020 (NFS)
“I have always struggled with feelings of insecurity and self-doubt and put huge amounts of pressure on myself to perform perfectly. I have felt this significantly during the pandemic as I've wanted to step up for my colleagues. For this work, I paid attention to feelings within my body that occur when I am feeling anxious and doubting my abilities; in particular, a feeling of hollowness through my body and head and a general sense of helplessness that suggests I should give up. This work was inspired by the process of Focus-Oriented Therapy and finding the 'felt sense' in a situation.” [Felicity Williams]
