2020 has given the idea of ‘going viral’ a whole new meaning. It feels like we are historically in the beginning of a new epoch, a new distinctive time period. Because we have been ‘given’ this isolating pause, we are just starting to see how different our lives may become. And when we have drastic changes to our lives, our art follows along and reflects those changes. As an artist, I’m used to working alone, it’s how I work best. But in this new age, I am forced to be more social – I ‘Zoom’ several times a week; I FaceTime family and friends way more than I ever did; I share art on FaceBook and Instagram more than ever with more people; and I’m collaborating on line with other artists. With this time there has also been a ‘viral’ spread of ideas and concepts and experimenting that didn’t happen before. I am very excited anticipating the ‘new’ art that will come from this ‘new’ age.
