Project: Things Feel So Different Now

Dates: May- June 2020

Solo Exhibition at Soapbox Arts, Burlington, VT, USA

Description:

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
