Although while isolated I have made other paintings (including over a dozen gouache portraits in Zoom grid meetings), this work from last summer better represents my ‘oeuvre’. With its portentous sky swirling above an equanimous earth, I feel a prescient sense of the coming calamity in which we now find ourselves. I believe all humans know things beyond our conscious understanding. Artists may be more sensitive, and like tuning forks, vibrate with energies that surround us. But these past months have exposed the fissures and faults of our society with a starkness all too painful.
Yet I rise, yet I remain hopeful. This plague will pass. My wish is that awareness of our connection to the planet, and our stewardship moving forward, preserves the world for our inheritors. And then, if good leaders arise, moves people to create the just, and sustainable, society we’ve always dreamt.
