An online exhibition by Deryck Henley.
These oils are all created during lockdown over the past year with models around the world, over zoom. All the models have posed for at least one of my online sessions and as an extra thanks, 10% of any sale will go to the model.

Self-portraits painted from the beginning of lockdown to the present day. An exploration of the self from my perspective of having schizophrenia whilst experiencing lockdown. All painted using oil on canvas and are approximately 50cm x 60cm. Observing lockdown rules led to isolation and separation from family, friends, and groups that provide vital support with face-to-face contact. This has brought a new and unwelcome ‘normality’. Finding coping strategies has been invaluable in dealing with hallucinatory voices and heightened anxiety. Fortunately, having the opportunity to paint and sculpt has led to a semblance of ‘normality’ for me.

So what is Dotty Art?
It’s all about relaxing, feeling good and enjoying yourself. It’s a gentle mindful practice that helps relieve worries, stress and anxiety, aiding feelings of wellbeing. Dot mark making to create images is a primitive art form (probably fingers dots), that’s deeply rooted in tribal cultures across the world from Europe to Australia to Africa and still used today.
