Acrylic, collage, and marker on canvas. I took this vintage pop art couple and reimagined them to be facing the challenges we are today with social distancing. Human nature is to be with other human beings. My goal was to showcase the closeness yet distant feeling we are all going through because of this pandemic. I hope that when viewers see this they think of the one person whose arms they wish to be in right now. Also, with the collage portion I wanted a sense of chaos because this what the virus brings; but I also put glimpses of calmness like the butterflies, flowers, etc. to show that this ugly time has a sense of beauty to it. I think for the first time we are opening our eyes and realizing we cannot continue living the way we have been, and the COVID-19 virus has tragically shown us that.
