Portfolio > Together and Apart: 51 Paintings from Quarantine

It’s easy, in light of an unprecedented global event, to curl up at home and let emotions—fear; anxiety; anger—cast a fog over the once-vibrant edges of our lives. Easier still to let this fog turn to lethargy, to “when this finally ends I’m going to …”

And maybe it’s this realization that has me filming videos and prepping panels, that’s punching a hole through isolation’s wall. So I paint, and I film it in time-lapse, and in my own minuscule way, I help shave away at the stodgy definition of ‘Quarantine’ that our world has imposed upon itself. The videos invite fellow exiles into my process. An alien spore materializes first, beneath the first set of brushstrokes: the virus (because, duh).

Subjects change—now a friend’s photo, posted on Facebook; now a snap from my daily walk—but the topic stays the same. Many exiles have reached out, some of whom I haven’t spoken to in decades. They say my sped-up phantom-hand and its product brightens their day. They say that alone in their homes, they feel like they’re “right there.”

Now I look over these panels and see nothing but contradiction: isolation as participation; social distance as emotional proximity; quarantine as togetherness.
