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 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. Summer has come and gone, however typically a foggy and cool city this time of year, was blistering hot and causing issues of a different kind. The impact on people outside was another dichotomy of bliss and suffering. The dichotomies of parties in the street, backyard bbqs, and bonfires on the beaches alongside sweltering hot streets and sidewalks - where many live and are trying to survive.
Each piece is 24"x24"x2", ink and pigment on wood panel.
