Being able to lean on art-making as an outlet during the unsettling daily shifts of this ongoing crisis has been invaluable and grounding for me. In addition to my personal process, I also collaborated with another artist during the quarantine to create and share a space for collective artistic expression. At a time of forced isolation and indefinite ambiguity, finding someone with a mutual fervor for a specific art media was igniting.
While we can’t ignore the far-reaching personal, professional, economic, and social impacts of the COVID-19 shutdown, we also can’t overlook the extensive and significant value of creative partnerships when we need connection the most.
