"In The Time of Covid19"
About the work:
When the lockdown started, I expanded on forms that I had been creating for a few years. They suddenly took on an intense meaning for me. Everyone in the world is going though a kind of metamorphosis, both personally and collectively.
Like many around the world, I was under a strict city lockdown and curfew. Walking my dog Harley, became one of the few times I was able to go outdoors and mentally escape. I began to document my walks with photography and publish them on social media.
The cocoon-like form is a place of solitude and transition, of moving from one state into another.
In Asia, there is a belief that all the people you have ever met, or will ever meet are connected with an invisible red thread.
During the strictest part of the quarantine and early curfews, I began photographing interesting things along my dog walks.
I take photos along the same 4 routes in my neighborhood and post them to my social media accounts. Over time, I realized I have been creating a kind of visual journal of my experiences of In the Time of Covid19.
Recent Oil Paintings
During the strictest part of the quarantine and early curfews, I have also been working on various paintings, oil on linen board.
I have created 3 paintings in an underwater series and several still life works to continue to stretch my practice.
