Mixed media on Canvas. 2020
This work examines the "ruptures" in our world that have been created during the current pandemic. Playing with ideas such as the world breaking apart and the ominous nature of the Covid virus, this collage was a work in planned improvisation. As part of my art philosophy I like to take old images and collage them together with other images to create a new message and/or work of Art.
I had converted to completely carving totem poles on my family's mountain property, using the stumps of old beetle kill trees, during the first few months of quarantine. Now that the fires have "quarantined" me from my cabin, I am back to completing some paintings I had started early on in the quarantine.
