Envisioning our Isolation II
The following paintings continue a series that I started around the time Covid-19 entered our lives. The work extends my meditation on the loneliness and melancholia brought about by the pandemic. The new paintings are inspired by the plays of shadows and light, and the emptiness we find in our profoundly changed environments.
