Then Again, 2021
In this series, I attempt to capture the delight and discomfort of a life in quarantine through intimate drawings of small gratitudes.
I focus on the subtle entanglement of tension, beauty and repetitive nature of passing time while living in dormancy. The drawings romanticize daylight ebbing and flowing under a curtain, the glow of a sunset through a car window, the warmth of the morning sky on a walk, the soft shadows on the face of a loved one.
In this series, I continue to work with a darkness seen in much of my previous work but place emphasis on exploring nuanced ideas of memory and tranquility under adversity. Working from photographs taken in passing, I recompose and eliminate much of the specificity, liberating the timelessness within them into tender and lyrical moments.
