This photo felt very appropriate right now…two of my most powerful paintings acknowledging the darkness (but still a glimmer of hope) in an empty, desolate space. It’s difficult not to feel that darkness and isolation with our freedoms continuously being constricted tighter and tighter as the cage gets smaller. All the while, there is no clear end in sight and we are left without vital answers from the people mandating these orders. It’s a battle for even the best of us. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, I am definitely feeling it. Without the outlets I have created over time to maintain my balance, the things that would help me hold my sanity, it is becomingly increasingly frustrating as I feel things boiling over and out of control. I do believe it’s important to have hope…to create hope. I also believe it’s important to call things what they are…but what is this really? It’s feeling more and more like freedom has become an illusion or a state of mind at best. We cannot leave our cages but the bills are still due. Perhaps tomorrow will be a brighter day…but to truly appreciate the light, you also have to acknowledge the dark or you leave out key components of history…a history we must learn from if we do not wish to repeat it.
