© Tracy Jones, Lunch with Villanelle (socially distanced of course)

This image sums up so much from the summer of 2020. Lock-down for me and many others without a garden involved a lot of internet and television. The need for a distraction from our four walls, even from within them, and to hear the sound of human voices. Screen entertainment contributed to the sanity of us all, when our daily lives seemed lifeless the screen gave us colour.

We collected so many new catch phrases during summer 2020, anything broadcast or published had to include the tagline; ‘Socially distanced of course!’

And so we lunched together, Villanelle in her box and I in my personal safe space. Psychopathic behaviour notwithstanding, Villanelle is escapism encapsulated; the will to do whatever she wants, amazing wardrobe, and the expert ability to kill anyone who gets in her way.
