Colored Pencil, Acrylic Paint Pens and Gouache. 2020
A male and female figure along with two birds and pangolin. She wears an "I Heart Clorox" shirt and his reads, "Social Distancer". He has a cage around him, however the animals are all free. Her hair is untamed and wild after weeks without a trip to the salon. Between them, the words "6 Feet" as well as the virus floating in the air. At the bottom, the title of the piece, "Living In The Time of Corona Virus" which is a take off of the book, "Living In The Time of Cholera"
I've been thinking about social distancing and how this impacts every aspect of human life. How we interact, how we communicate, how we work and socialize.... it's ALL been affected. We are living in a time that none of us every expected and how we react to it is very interesting to watch unfold.
