Pandemic Office, 2020
Oil on Canvas
12 x 12 in
Of the multitude of ways in which the pandemic profoundly effected peoples' lives, in this painting I wanted to capture how it impacted home life. For those fortunate enough to maintain employment by working remotely through the pandemic, that often meant the quick improvisational creation of a home office; in this case, my wife working out of our bedroom. But more than that, I was interested in capturing how this new existence created a world of "connection" and isolation simultaneously.
