About the artwork

Altar is a table created in response to Melbourne’s COVID-19 lockdowns. The symbols hand-drawn by Connell on Altar represent moments of seeking refuge, retreat and reflection. A loaf of bread, bottle of wine, plate of fish and bowl of fruit show the table as a site for gathering, feasting and communing with loved ones.
