State of the Nation

I uploaded a fraction of the total works I've created during the pandemic, as art has been my one true vice and coping mechanism, and I've created something nearly every single day since COVID-19 hit the US.

Each piece has varying themes, stories, mediums, and purposes, but are united by three things that earmark my experience through the pandemic (1) my desire for escapism (2) the collective societal angst and feeling of obligation to capture the times and (3) the desire to spread joy and give back in small ways.

State of the Nation (Acrylic on linen statue of liberty painting): I felt the tensions and suffering from the pandemic, when coupled with social unrest and a polarizing bigoted president really came to a head on election night 2020. I painted this while anxiously watching CNN election coverage, channeling the feeling of hopelessness for our country if we were to be stuck with another toxic 4 years.
