“This has been very emotional for me to see (willing) participants send me their photographs, how the PPE obscures their faces as they attempt to protects both themselves and the person they are dealing with from the virus. I have painted them in a literal, contemporary way echoing the illustrative field of the cartoon and comic which so often contain our accepted interpretation of superheroes, these people are the true heroes.” – Sarah Flanagan

“Sarah’s work is absolutely beautiful and it was an honour to be asked to take part and represent our policing colleagues. This has been such a strange time which will be going down in history, so its poignant to have it documented in art form” – PC Deborah Bakin Nottinghamshire Police.
