2020 Corona Visions - Experience
William Blake describes Innocence and Experience as "the two contrary states of the human soul". To Blake, Experience lacks the joy and vision of Innocence and perception is distorted through a weary lens. This collection, the sister-gallery to the Innocence collection, is made up of submissions from established artists and the general public under the first period of national lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. Experience results in woe and the imprisonment of the soul in "mind-forg'd manacles".
