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 an attempt 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
