Christopher Banahan: An Artists Lockdown Diary 

The artwork in the exhibition are based on the Visual COVID-Lockdown Diary of artist Christopher Banahan, made during the 2020/21 lockdowns as a response to being a recipient of the Art Council’s COVID crises Artists Response Award. 

The exhibition addresses themes of loneliness with the effects of social isolation during the lockdowns, particularly for the elderly in rural communities. The exhibition also expresses the beauty of rural settings and being fortunate enough to be surrounded by such ‘imprisoned splendour’ particularly with the fine weather of the first lockdown.
