Pandemic Migration

Oil on Canvas

Inspired by the unfolding and ongoing events of the insidious COVID-19 global pandemic and how out of an hellacious event, good can triumph. The small deleterious dark space of fear and loss, is nihilistic enveloping our girls. Love holds them tightly together with a joint vision of this will pass, of hope.

While it’s a portrait of two, it’s also a mirror to the world populous. A vaccine, better therapeutic remedies are evolving, there’s a hope that a panaceas of altruism can be shared across different ethnic political cultural and economic borders with all people benefiting worldwide and so relegating the COVID-19 pandemic to the history books. With an orbital perspective, together and with love we will prevail.
