2022 SWELL ARTWORK – HOLIDA(_), Emma Anna

HOLIDA(_)  is the latest instalment in Emma’s ongoing WORDPLAY  series. Emma provides us with a poetic gesture acknowledging the mental health challenges that we have collectively faced over the past several years. HOLIDA(_) is a concrete poem born from the detritus of the pandemic era. Nature is the greatest healer: let’s all head to the beach.
