Pippa Smith's surrealist stylisation with her understanding of colour and pattern creation is used to express her reflection on the isolation both felt by domesticated animals and humans during the Pandemic.
As animals peacefully graze in their everyday, they contrastingly continue to be restricted by their enclosures in which they don't have voice. A 'contentment' however is often observed as they go about their minimalistic world exercising the remaining freedom to eat and roam. Whilst many rights and freedoms seem to be out of reach to these domesticated folk, an opportunity to embrace what still remains presents itself.
