The long bloom is a series of drawings thinking through nature and domestic spaces wo- ven with melancholy. The reflective nature as entangled with melancholic feelings is com- bined with ideas of isolation during lockdown. The drawings act as a way to illustrate the longing one has for the outdoor environment. Employing graphite and paper, the works executed during the lockdown details observations of indoor plants while drawing upon different images of inhabitants in the different domestic spaces. The indoor ‘garden’ can be read to mimic the natural environment, becoming a possible space of repose during isolating, yet ‘noisy’, periods of time.
