Image Statement: The Covid pandemic changed our lives. Gone is the ease with which we led our daily routines. With excessive handwashing, mask-wearing, cessation of hugging, shaking hands, sharing food and drink – we were torn from our relative ease moving through the world. Whether or not shelter-in-place restrictions persist, our sense of safety has been forever altered. “Shelter in Place,” woven in stark black, white and red, represents an isolation experienced by so many, offering but a tiny window’s view from our separate silos.
