Acrylic Paint on Paper.
This abstract painting explores my emotions since I have lost my job due to the coronavirus pandemic. It conveys how my physical and mental health depend on a normal day-to-day routine, and how lost I have felt since that was taken away from me. It's terrifying yet interesting to think that none of us know when this is going to end, and when it does end, is life truly going to go back to "normal?" The question is, what is life going to look like when the pandemic ends? I'm hoping the answer will be more simple than it may be.
Somehow, I have found more motivation to create during this quarantine than I have in all my years of school. Although I'm unable to work in a studio, my apartment has made a comfortable space for myself during this odd time. I have found out that my mental and physical health highly depend on normal day-to-day routine, and painting has allowed me to find balance and composure. I'm currently in my senior semester at University of Colorado Denver, and I'll be graduating in May with a BFA in Art Practices. Due to the coronavirus, we are unable to display our work for our BFA Thesis show, and it has put an indescribable ache in all of our hearts.
