A WREXHAM-BASED artist and lecturer has lent their skills to an innovate online series.

Rhi Moxon, who is one of a series of artists who are taking part in the Tŷ Pawb 'At Home' series, which has been put together by the town's cultural community resource and arts space to help encourage people to discover and develop their artistic side during lockdown.

Ms Moxon, who also lectures in graphics at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, is one of six artists chosen from a longlist of more than 40 individuals who answered an open call for contributions, and who hopes that it will help boost people’s positivity with art projects they can carry out at home.

She said: "I'd just started mucking around with timelapse videos and filming myself making collages and bookbinding and all the other stuff I play around with if I don't feel like actual drawing - and that's how I was feeling, a lot, at the beginning of lockdown.

"The anxieties around the pandemic were a bit overwhelming and my creativity was zapped.

"When I feel like that I try to do more physical, mechanical processes like bookbinding and cutting paper - they seem to calm my mind."

As she thought about the work she would produce for her videos, she began to draw inspiration from the art she saw being made by members of the public in response to the crisis.

She added: "I was inspired by all the little creative responses I was seeing pop up everywhere, messages of positivity and resilience both online and off.

"Every day, on my morning run, I was seeing more and more rainbows and 'we love the NHS' posters and all sorts of bright and colourful adornments on people's windows that made me smile."

This led Ms Moxon to be reminded of the bold colourful screen-prints of Sister Corita Kent in the 1960s, intended to get people feeling positively about social issues and to make them feel empowered and emboldened and to keep going, which resulted in her ‘Positivity Press’ project.

As she designed her project, Ms Moxon consciously strove to ensure that the techniques she used were ones anyone who wanted to have a go at home could follow easily, and without needing elaborate equipment.
