Artists in Virtual Residence

The Sir Denis Mahon Foundation is pleased to host Artists in Virtual Residence on this page, presenting a selected single work of an artist every eight weeks.

Sandy Christie

This month we are delighted to show “Dreaming about when we can dance Again” a work by the artist Sandy Christie.

“Dreaming about when we can dance Again” Acrylic on Somerset Satin Cotton Paper 25 x 25.5 cm

The Artist says:

During the period of lockdown I was captured by the idea of not being able to go dancing and how it is one of the most interactive fun and energetic thing to do with another person. I was interested in capturing some kind of abstract movement paired alongside vivid colour, so I got to work and created the Dreaming series.
