Behind the doors of an artist’s studio, and buried deep within a finished piece, lies an incredibly unique and personal process. This process is often filled with various rituals – both significant and subtle – that help to gently set the mood, or encourage that first brush stroke on a blank canvas.

With this fascinating concept in mind, we invited a selection of artists to create a work, or series of works, that spoke to their own rituals, by posing the question: ‘Do small daily rituals and habits build themselves into the work you as an artist produce, or do they merely allow you to distinguish the necessary space between daily life and your creative outlet?’.

The resulting body of work is diverse and exciting, and offers a small window into these artists’ processes. We hope you find something to treasure, or gift to a loved one this year!
