I experienced the Covid-19 Stay at Home mandates in two stages.
At first, I found them very restrictive and isolating. My major concerns as a single person revolved around survival issues. Going to the store. Shortages.. The possibilities of fuel disruptions. I lost hours of work. Avoided the constant drip of dread from the media. Reruns of Law and Order were getting stale.
However, as this continued, I began to feel a certain freedom. The forced isoation began to be freeing. After making my adjustments, the time afforded me the opportunity to become free from routines and responsibilities. I was lucky enough to reacquaint myself with Lauren deLeeuw during one of my walks, and began to take painting lessons. Untutored and unfettered, I was able to allow my imagination to soar. Since I am a psychotherapist, I was able to allow my unconscious to take over the creative process, and with Lauryn’s fine teaching, and immersion in art, was able to produce a body of work, two of which I am submitting. I think that in these two pieces I feel that the evolution of my journey is reflected in them.
Covid Chaos 24″ x 24″ is self explanatory. It reflects to disruption of the epidemic in our lives and draws on many of the abstract expressionists. It is acrylic on canvas and used sponges, brushes and wallpaper scraping tools.
