The Garden Drawing Series, is a group of etchings created by Chrisél Attewell during the COVID-19 nationwide lockdown in South Africa in 2020. Under normal circumstances, the artist creates prints and images on construction sites in Johannesburg, the creation of work was now limited to the space available.

“The works were created in a more constrained way forcing me to work in a small garden as opposed to roaming the city for exciting new projects”.

The result is a more subtle and intimate reading on available earth, which draws on the fragility and uncertainty felt by the artist during this time in confinement.
