‘The idea around working with artists and putting together an online exhibition was inspired by the word ‘Time’ and how time had changed for all of us and everyone was working around time differently.’ – Kom Achall.

The Wolverhampton based artist and NAC resident had began creating artwork in the limits of her home and local area, reflecting on, ‘there is darkness in life and there is light in life’ and it would only be a matter of ‘Time’ when we would be on the other side of our current situation. In this pandemic Kom was encouraged, when she saw artists putting their work on social media and invited them to take part in an online exhibition ‘Out of Darkness Cometh Light’. Look out for more information of the exhibition and artworks across NAC’s social media pages in the following weeks.
