Image Statement: Pandemic Isolation Blues provides an abundance of disjointed patterns and textures that befits those times when our routine was shredded & shrouded in angst. There is no dominant element so the viewer is confronted with many stimuli of equal weight. To completely absorb it requires some time & then the imagination kicks in. Are those leaves floating down a stream? What about that one spot of bright green– is there something underneath the layers or does it represent hope for a greener tomorrow in our ocean? I want to engage a viewer’s imagination in the same way that cloud formations used to stimulate mine when I was a child.
