“It Will Be Okay, Quarantine No.10”


“It Will Be Okay, Quarantine No.10” marked the stage of 2020 where, in fact, nothing was okay. Grief and denial were in full swing, marked by the loss of one of my grandparents. This work was made with a panicked hope that somehow, things would be okay. That they would work out. The colors are all loud and in disharmony with one another. Her expression is one of denial, optimistic without reason. Red snakes its way through the image, trying to come to the forefront, illustrating her forcing down the reality of the situation. The color, like grief, is too sharp. Too much to face. But still, we hope things will be okay.
