Project: Things Feel So Different Now
Dates: May- June 2020
Solo Exhibition at Soapbox Arts, Burlington, VT, USA
In the middle of a pandemic, trying not to panic, and feeling like time is standing still. Then comes Spring and with it the flowers. What are these curious lovely things? Don't they know there is a global pandemic?
This series of acrylic on birch panel paintings are a placeholder for attempting to process the collective trauma of sudden change.
You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep Spring from coming. - Pablo Neruda
I paint flowers so that they will not die. -Frida Kahlo
