"All the pieces from this collection were made during lockdown in my temporary home studio. Whilst on lockdown, it's given me the chance to explore new ideas and play with what limited resources I have available. This collection is the result of many weeks stuck in my flat playing and keeping myself from going mad.
"All the paintings reflect certain moods I've gone through over the last eight weeks. Some days were good and some were bad. I used painting to channel this and turn it into something positive." –Mr Penfold
