THIS PIECE HAS BEEN DONATED TO HOSPITALITY HOUSE FOR THEIR 2021 AUCTION THIS YEAR.
I began this series immediately when the ShelterInPlace orders went into effect in March. I process my life experiences through art-making and layer my thoughts and feelings into each piece. As isolation, uncertainty and fear took hold of life - and the wave of human suffering consumed many of us whole, I put it all into each of these pieces - week by week, layer by layer. The reality of time has changed in these months. Days blur into weeks blur into months. Rhythms and new routines have likely been established by now for many, despite the un-changed underlying fears and vulnerabilities. Government help has reached many, so the pressure seems less for many though nothing has really changed. We are still isolated yet tethered together, waiting, watching - and listening.
The imagery of a globe has become infused in my works since this summer when I was invited to create a public mural. The concept of our connectivity - the overlap and reflection of ourselves onto each other pervades my thoughts and therefore, has become infused into this series.
Each piece is 24"x24"x2", ink and pigment on wood panel.
