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. New terminology has emerged during this pandemic crisis and the term "contact tracing" started to become a household term in early May, at least in my world. Being aware of our paths and overlapping touch of things with others, has become a new way of life for many. Awareness of our hands - and with whom we touch and why has become a socially accepted protocol engaging with people, children and loved ones included.
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.
