What 11 Artists Have Created During Quarantine

May 19, 2020 by Gay Gassman

Belgian artist Eric Croes has been quietly working away in his studio in Brussels, a five-minute walk from his house. He has taken advantage of the short commute to bring his dog, Mammouth, a little dachshund, to and fro. Croes has been one to watch these past few years, building up an artistic practice of fanciful and colorful ceramic totems and sculptures, all highly personal. He once told AD that these works were ways for him to tell personal stories without bothering anyone. As for the past few weeks on lockdown, the artist says, "God never closes a door without leaving a window open." Croes was meant to have a solo show mid-March at Sorry We're Closed, his Brussels gallery, but he says, "Instead of drowning in melancholy, I took advantage of the time to throw myself into my work: I started working on a commission for the city of Nantes and it took an unexpected turn during this strange period. During the modeling process, it became something like an ex-voto covered with good luck charms. I wanted it to be like a good genie protecting the passersby. It's also brought me good luck in the studio during this time."
