Acrylic, Graphite, Oil on Canvas. 2020
May 26, 2020. This is the second of a series of four panels titled No Limits, No Boundaries II. Again, vivid red/orange coloring, graphite marks to connect, and white oil overglaze that softens the entire image. The first in this series, No Limits, No Boundaries I has an extensive explanation of my process and thinking.
These four panels hang together to show my interpretation of COVID events of this spring. They can be exhibited in a linear event or stacked two upon two in a large square format....the linear shows a progression of thought, the large square is an enveloping sensation - large, and multi-layered, much like the events of 2020.
No Limits, No Boundaries I has a more complete articulation of how coronavirus impacted my art practice.
As stated there - I liken it to a Ferris Wheel - up at the very top, stalled at the bottom - attempting to move forward into my more normal state of being. I attempt to be fully engaged in the process of living, learning, and experiencing. We're here one time - why not make the most of it. Gratitude for health, shelter is a big part of what I am feeling right now - for my family, friends and myself. But, I also very much realize that the world, and my neighbors might not be so lucky. That is sobering.
