Alexandre Santacruz, Dean Reddick, Katy Sayers Green and Vaiva Kovieraitė - Art of Caring 2020

Welcome to the Art of Caring 2020. Today we introduce the work of 4 artists who have contributed work to this year's exhibition.... Alexandre Santacruz, Dean Reddick, Katy Sayers Green and Vaiva Kovieraitė. The Art of Caring is an annual inclusive international art exhibition celebrating Nurses, Midwives, Carers, and the NHS. Thank you to the School of Nursing at Kingston University for their support.

"Throughout my live, and in the most difficult moments of my battle with ill health, all the suffering has always been magically minimised; with the never ending care, dedication, hard work and skill from Nurses and Carers. To all of them I owe eternal gratitude; as without them I wouldn't be here!"
 Through different mediums, including collage, I explore the relationship between people in society.
Sex, gender, mental health issues  and identity are part of people’s everyday life but not always accepted or understood in their broad possibility of existence.
How much do we truly know about people around us, what’s going on their private existences behind closed doors? How different we can be on the outside; from what society allows us to freely be?
Throughout life, and while memories shape our identity, we all thrive to change misconceptions of our own self; projecting freedom and fairness all across the human race without judgements or fears
What a difference it would make if identity wasn’t a mere way of acceptance, filtered and observed under a magnifying glass by society, but a way to fully express and complement with acceptance of natural human nature
I resource all my materials in a recycling way from charity shops to flea markets and street finds; looking for past lives to shine through and help me create and show my vision.
The vision I have is about all of us.
