Will We be okay (2020) Oil on a wooden panel.
“When I was invited to participate, I knew I wanted to create something comforting yet completely non-conforming to the work I’ve seen during this time. When creating this work, digging into previous work looking for ways I could employ these pieces for you. Breaking down my work to human experience and holding a magnifying glass up. My emphasis of hi key color, evoking this sense of isolation with one’s self and with our loved ones. My experience with this quarantine so far has been constantly surrounding the TV with family. Constantly hoping for a positive massage, unfortunately few of them are. I find myself having to comfort myself. This being the reason why I choose to have myself -play both roles. Creating this looking glass to this intimate conversation with oneself. That I feel has become this universal experience for humanity now.“
