Welcome Back is a group exhibition featuring over thirty artists’ responses to the unprecedented COVID-19 Pandemic. Curated by Jean Sonderand for Maggi Peyton Gallery, and hosted by the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, the exhibition is an opportunity for artists and residents to come together and consider the variety of public and private experiences we have faced over the last two years. Welcome Back is a celebration of our resiliency as a city and culture, and an invitation for New Yorkers to consider how we will grow and adapt as we recover over the years to come.

Each artist in this exhibition had a unique response to the pandemic, but certain themes jump out as we look at the collection as a whole. Some ticked away the time reading the daily updates in the news, with headlines and crosswords marking the uncertain trajectory of an unfolding, global crisis. PPE, consisting of masks, gloves, and medical ephemera, littered our lives and our streets, accumulating physically as well as symbolically. With the world cut off, the familiar shape of our homes was radically transformed. Our bedrooms and offices became safe havens in which entire lives were carried out, while a view out of a window became a portal to an unfamiliar world of vacant streets. Meanwhile, our obsession with sanitation led others to re-investigate the meaning of touch and contact, especially when physical closeness could spell a death sentence for those we cherished. Scarcity, uncertainty, and boredom drove us nearly mad, but the same forces inspired many to re-envision our lives, our communities, and our aspirations.

Welcome Back is a reflection of how our sensibilities have changed and adapted to this ‘new normal’, and an invitation to embrace these experiences as they guide the trajectory of our recovery, in New York and beyond.

This exhibition is generously supported by City Artists Corps Grant made to the curator, Jean Sonderand. More info at https://www.nyfa.org/awards-grants/city-artist-corps-grants/

Jean Sonderand (they/them/theirs)





“I am an artist, academic, and advocate working to bring light to issues of social justice and sustainability. I work primarily in photography, but have exhibited video work, as well as paintings and drawings, at galleries in the United States and internationally. After moving to New York in 2013 from Kansas, my home state, I became deeply involved in my art practice, while also enmeshing myself in New York’s vibrant queer community.

This gave rise to my first projects in photobook making and zine printing, which I first exhibited at the Brooklyn Zine Festival. Since then I have performed in queer theatrical dances at the New York Library of Performing Arts as well as Judson Memorial Church, and regularly volunteering for organizations advocating queer art and activism. I recently finished my masters degree in Visual and Critical Studies at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago, which culminated in two separate exhibitions at Weinberg/Newton Gallery and another in conjunction with the 16th Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy.

While I work to keep my connections with communities in all of the places I’ve worked and studied, I now live in New York, where I hope to find further opportunities to collaborate locally while deepening my art practice and advocacy.”

“Hope in a Vial” is part of my series “Solidarity - Images for Social Justice”

The “Solidarity” series consists of works created in response to social justice issues, including the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

These works of “artivism” reflect on our collective experience during the pandemic (from trauma and fear to empowerment and hope,) while expressing universal values of love, justice and equality, that aim to build bridges across borders, languages and cultures.

The images are created digitally and have been published widely including in The Nation, The Manhattan Times, Viceversa, Fanyblog and WeEmpower (Italy,) Chartis (Greece,) and other publications, and have been exhibited in the USA, Italy, Turkey, Portugal and Spain.

Anne Katrine Senstad

How We Live Together, 2018, Wood, brushed brass aluminum, 35 x 38 x 1/2 in. / 88.9 x 96.5 x 1.3 cm. Edition of 3. (AKS0060) Courtesy of Yi Gallery, New York and the artist.





Anne Katrine Senstad is an interdisciplinary Norwegian-Amernican artist whose practice lies in the intersections of light sculpture, installation, immersive environments, photography, video, land and site-specific art. Senstad was raised in Singapore and Norway, today she lives and works between New York and Oslo. Having studied video art at the University of California at Berkeley and earned her BFA Honors in Photography from the Parsons School of Design, she went on to study film at the New School for Social Research in New York. Notable exhibitions include Radical Light (2021) at Seinajöki Kunsthall, Finland and Radical Light (2020) at Kai Art Center in Estonia, a monumental light environment accompanied by acclaimed composer JG Thirlwell’s sound composition, Music for Plutocracy at S12 Gallery, Norway (2021), How We Live Together, Yi Gallery, New York (2020), Seen Unseen (2018) at He Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen, China with an immersive light sculpture and color environment ELEMENTS II (2018); light art survey Through The Spectrum at Athr Gallery alongside James Turrell, Robert Irwin, Carlos Cruz Diez and Leo Villareal with ELEMENTS I (2018); the 55th (2013) and 56th (2015) Venice Biennales and Bruges Art and Architecture Triennale (2015). Her video work has been shown worldwide at Centre Pompidou, Haus Der Kultur Der Welt, Beirut Art Center, The Canadian Museum of Nature, Museum of Modern Art Ukraine, Dallas Aurora, Eva Peron Museum, Oslo Screen Festival and K4 Gallery.


My exhibition How We Live Together at Yi Gallery in Brooklyn, set to open in March 2020 was effected by the pandemic in numerous ways. First the gallery was closed so we carefully opened it in August 2020, and secondly, the whole exhibition concept changed from a societal theory based installation, to a humanistic and critical response to what we as New Yorkers were going through in the spring and summer of 2020. I developed the text piece, with the same title as the exhibition title, How We Live Together, in 2018 , a long time prior to the pandemic, based on the philosophical theories of Roland Barthes on ideorrythmic living formats in relation to societal structures and ideas of utopia, which in Barthes 1977 world, lies in tolerance of the fellow citizen – yet transformed the concept of isolated living formats, to responding to the crisis. The exhibition included 4 works: the wall text piece in a brass covered corporate signate asesthetic “ How We Live Together” , a neon wall work, “Ascension/Descension Graph” as a response to Cuomo's daily briefings on the numbers of hospitalized and deceased from Covid televised as a corporate graph, “Circle of Babel” plexiglass cultures seeking to unify pour separateness, and a short film in collaboration with acclaimed actor Bill Sage, famous from Amercian Psycho, Law & Order and much more, who performed a remote reading of a selection from Barthes book, and footage from our lives during the pandemic as a way to creatively process the isolation. The 10 minute short film can be viewed on request as it is password protected and has been screened with Streaming Museum in NY and Yi Gallery in 2020. There are 4 films in total in the How We Live Together short film series I created with Bill Sage.

The sculpture series Tower of Babel, was built during the early stages of the pandemic, while I also investigated historic art works of human and societal erosion. Mythology and iconic symbolism seemed to reflect our condition and the story of god, or a larger consciousness punishing the human race for its wickedness by separating us from our families and loved ones. The sculpture installation The Circle of Babel suggests a unifying togetherness of separated parts.

Arlene Schulman

Mask Up Uptown series with Juan Ignacio Rosa / Rene de los Santos /Temple Kemezis and Derek Ratzenboeck / Lisbel Martinez



Arlene Schulman was born in a tiny hamlet called the Bronx and grew up in the Linden Houses in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn. She currently resides on the island of Manhattan. As a writer, photographer, and all-around creative person, her published books include the award winning The Prizefighters: An Intimate Look at Champions and Contenders; 23rd Precinct: The Job; and Cop on the Beat. Her writing and short films can be found on her website, ArlenesScratchPaper, and on her YouTube channel, ArleneSchulman123.


Mask Up Uptown was produced during the early stages of the pandemic to remind people to wear a mask. Uptown neighbors were pressed into action to illustrate this important message.



Brenda Berkman

"2021," 8"x10" framed, 2021, two-stone lithograph print, drawn and printed by the artist




In 1982, Brenda Berkman won her landmark sex discrimination case against the New York City Fire Department and became one of the FDNY’s first women firefighters. For 25 years, she served the City as a firefighter and fire officer, rising to the rank of Captain. A PBS documentary about her career “Taking the Heat” can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6l56ShNMAE&t=63s She continues to mentor girls and young women both in firefighting and other non-traditional work and is also a volunteer tour guide on the 9-11 Memorial.

On retiring from the FDNY in 2006, knowing nothing about drawing or printmaking, Brenda decided to study printmaking at the Art Students League, where she quickly fell in love with stone lithography. Part of the WNET documentary about the League, Berkman has always been eager to collaborate with other League artists. She created a collaborative art project commemorating the tenth anniversary of 9/11 involving 12 other artists connected to the League. After an exhibition at Westbeth, that group of works was then collected and exhibited by the League. For the 15th anniversary of 9/11 in 2016, Berkman created “Thirty-six Views of One World Trade Center,” to document the rebuilding of lower Manhattan after 9-11. Drawing and printing hundreds of stone lithograph prints of 36 iconic views of the new One World Trade Center over the course of three years (averaging a print per month!), Berkman’s series was collected by the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and is currently the subject of a solo exhibition at St. Olaf College on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of 9/11. A news story about her artist talk can be found at https://kstp.com/minnesota-news/september-11-2001-exhibit-at-saint-olaf-college-altered-skyline-brenda-berkman/6240618/ Her book about Thirty-six Views was published in September.

A short video about the Thirty-six Views project is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7Bp7LXlf2M&feature=youtu.be

Berkman is the featured artist for the 2021 White House Fellows conference this October.

Berkman serves on the Board of Directors of Monumental Women (MW), dedicated to honoring women and people of color in public spaces. On the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 2020, she coordinated the unveiling of MW’s Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument (WRPM) in the midst of the pandemic, the first statue of real women in the 167-year history of Central Park. The unveiling ceremony can be watched at https://monumentalwomen.org/ and more information is at https://monumentalwomen.org/the-unveiling/ She also coordinated MW’s Talking Statues project for the WRPM, an app featuring the voices of Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander and Viola Davis (English), and Rita Moreno, America Ferrara and Zoe Saldana (Spanish). Monumental Women’s projects include a “toolkit” to help more communities honor women in public spaces and a 5-borough Women’s Rights History Trail.


In March 2020 when the Covid pandemic shut down art studios all over New York City, stone lithograph printmakers like me did not have options to continue our printmaking – we had no access to the litho stones, presses and other equipment we need. Even when vaccination was possible and studios started to reopen with limitations, I still had health concerns about mass transit, infection rates, etc. that made me hesitant to fully embrace resuming artmaking. For one of my first images after returning to the studio, I drew a small stone to resemble a cave, with nooks and openings that reminded me of how I felt being separated from most family and friends. Two little eyes peering out of the “cave” express the hesitancy I still feel about resuming normal activities. The surrounding green vegetation is inviting and symbolic of hope and renewal.

Halo, graphite/mixed on paper with vellum overlay (graphite/mixed), 15"x12", 2020




Illinois native Carla Lobmier was awarded an APEX Studio NYC residency in 1999, prompting her move to NYC. Since 2000 she has lived and worked in Jackson Heights, Queens. Her paintings, drawings and mixed media pieces have been exhibited at the Queens Museum, Langston Hughes Cultural Center, Resobox Gallery, NYC; The Buckman Center, Memphis, TN; as well as site-specific watercolor installations for the Mid-Manhattan Library, NYC. Grace In Dwelling, her companion book to the art of the same title, was published by Ragged Sky Press on the occasion of this piece exhibited at the Queens Museum. Shaping the Container, her art/movement piece was supported by a Queens Council for the Arts 2018 New Works Grant. She is a recipient of a 2021 NYC City Artist Corps Grant.


Concentration is disciplined, requiring practice.

I am a visual artist, primarily. I paint and draw. My studio practice languished with the pandemic’s escalation here in NYC where I live and work, so the necessary concentration came hard. Making the piece, “Flip Book, March 2020,” was the means to move through my inertia and give my thoughts and hands a place of focus.

Most mornings early in the pandemic my husband and I took long walks to Flushing Meadows - Corona Park in our home borough of Queens. We plotted a route skirting contact with people, arriving at the park consoled to be in such open space. Quite possibly, the landscape in FM-CP was the largest, unoccupied panorama in NYC during that spring. The Unisphere, commissioned for the 1964-65 World’s Fair, became a fixture of my study. Designed by Gilmore D. Clarke, the steel monument represents the world’s continents and major mountain ranges in relief and is encircled by three rings that represent the orbits of early satellites. As my perception of the monument changed with light and weather conditions, I was unfailingly fascinated. I drew this motif as a landmark in Flip Book’s composition, next painting an over-sized microscopic coronavirus overhead a draped torso (me). Beneath this vellum layer is a second paper layer with a painted shadowy figure encircled by text and continuous calendar numbers.

The text reads:

March Fevery January

Flip Book

The circle of our walks to the Unisphere intersected the orbit of changing information transmitting the world’s pandemic condition. The studio became a satellite in these rings – a space to process and make something of my finite movement.

Although my studio is only one flight down from my home floor in my building, I still take a big breath, open the door, and hurry down the stairs.

Cora Jane Glasser is a third generation New Yorker, born in Brooklyn and residing in Manhattan. She received her education in New York City public schools, earned her degree at Queens College and received further art education at the Arts Students League.

Glasser’s family history is deeply entrenched in the history of the City. Her father’s family worked in a building trade, and her mother’s in the garment and entertainment industries. Her personal generational connection to the City and its growth gives her a layered, archaeological view of it that is reflected in her work. Recently, she has worked on a commission for the production of permanent artwork onto architectural glass for a building in Queens, and created a monumental installation for a group exhibit at FIT inspired by these influences. Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows nationally and internationally, and is held in private, corporate and municipal collections.

Glasser works from her studio in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn.


While wandering my neighborhood during the pandemic, I sadly took note of the emptiness. I passed the location of a restaurant where for decades my family had celebrated happy occasions; it was like a gut-punch to see that it had closed. My head swimming with memories, I peered inside and beyond the darkness I saw only ghostly furnishings. Wanting to hold onto something that I knew was already out of reach, I stood up against the window and took some photos through the glass – not expecting much. The photos, however, unexpectedly captured reflections of translucent layered images that appeared to be floating into the ether. I knew that when I got back into the studio I would somehow paint these images. The Party’s Over is a series of paintings inspired by this and the many closings of familiar and beloved spots in NYC neighborhoods as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Fiesta Flags, playful ubiquities in Mexican restaurants, are depicted as lost objects, shadows and reflections, emblematic of the disappearances and losses we have experienced. On the bright side, over the month we have seen the streets of New York come alive, and we can even see Fiesta Flags beckoning again.

David Straange

CRUELTY, 2020, acrylic, 20 x 16

LAWLESS, 2020, acrylic, 20 x 16



​David Straange was born in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1992. David’s work is informed by his diverse study of sculpture, Jazz, ballet, art history, analog photography, theatre, cultural communications and anthropology. Primarily working in painting and drawing, David’s art practice also includes artist books and music.

David is the son of a Fraud Bank Analyst Mother, and a Desert Storm war veteran Father. His earliest memories include gas being 99 cents, going to Burger King to get french toast sticks, (4 pieces), being afraid of grass, and listening to his brother freestyle emcee over the radio.


"Cruelty" and "Lawless" are from a body of work titled "Requiem Future" also a stylized Art movement, using monochrome colours, water colour, and various materials mixed with oil and acrylic paint. Requiem Future is David Straange’s first official body of work released to the public. The experience is a monochromatic opera, a modus operandi of architecture, geometric forms, and discourse bending dimensional space.

David's thoughts on Cruelty and Lawless:

Cruelty is a piece that juxtaposes what is meditative and what is obscene. The painting technique requires complete zen, to just be, and the external opulence collides with the audiences ideas of color, politics, structure, art, and classical painting. What is deemed cruel in a pandemic, being confined to the home in quarantine, or watching other pass on due to infection in distance.

Lawless challenges what is proper in painting and society. The extreme securities to even drop off art work, because it could carry explosives. The tight rigidness in clothing, speech, art, media, news, finance, and food is very telling of an impending doom looming in the air if one table leg goes missing. The juxtaposition here is the extreme security breaching the divine rules of human rights, calling undocumented people illegal is the result of this tight rigidness in society. The modus of thinking has made society become lawless ignoring universal law.

"Hidden Feelings" (multiple), 2018 mixed media 50 x 37.5 in



My creation is strongly impacted by personal processes and my way of seeing the world. A common issue that runs through all my artistic production is the water. The fluid appears in the technique, represented visually or metaphorically in issues such as transformation, balance point, adaptation and cleanliness.

The essential conceptual issue of my creation is in the nature of things - both environmental and human nature are explored in their beauty, flaws, traditions and contradictions. With a background in the study of marine biology, since the beginning of my career as an artist I have created ceramic pieces inspired by the nature of the oceans. Transformation, destruction, rebirth and breaking point are present. My research also incorporates elements of popular cultures and ancestral wisdom.

During the pandemic, I started a process of reaction to a depression and various personal issues that is metaphorized in my current production. I started creating ceramic bombs and weapons that also deal with phenomena like destruction and rebirth. In these series, I try to explore our psychological nature and, at the same time, propose a reflection on our turning points – how a destructive reaction can be the beginning of something that is being built.

Elizabeth Riley

Untitled Orange-Yellow Mural; 40 x 120"; 2021; Video stills inkjet-printed on paper, colored pencil


instagram: @elizabethrileyprojects


Elizabeth Riley’s art addresses questions concerning the complex and changing world we inhabit and our “mixed reality,” living between physical and digital/virtual contexts. The works produced take the form of two and three dimensional wall works, installations, and tabletop cityscapes, made from video, video stills, and diverse materials. A long time New Yorker, Elizabeth Riley graduated from Barnard College and received an MFA from Hunter College. The artist recently completed a proposal, as a finalist, for a Percent for Art commission for a public school in New York City. April 2021, her two-dimensional wall work was presented in a 2-person show at Spantzo Gallery on New York City’s Lower East Side. She was a resident at the Millay Colony, November 2020, and has participated in 14 artist residencies, in the US and aboard. “Ribbons Become Space,” a solo show of her work, featuring an installation including six live video elements, was presented at SL Gallery, in Manhattan, 2019. In 2018 her video, “The Life of a City,” was screened as part of the BRIC Garage Door Video Series, at BRIC Arts-Media House in Brooklyn. Also in 2018 the artist curated "Trill Matrix" for The Clemente Center on the Lower East Side, a show of seven dynamic women artists. In December, 2017, Elizabeth Riley’s wall sculpture was on display in Excessive Frugality at Odetta Gallery in Brooklyn. In April, 2017, the site-specific participatory installation, “City Remix,” appeared in the exhibition, Reconstruct, at LIU in Brooklyn, and in June, 2017, the 20 x 20 ft installation, “Paper Dragons, Brooklyn,” which functions as a walk-in, physical video, appeared in Bigger, Bolder, Better at 470 Vanderbilt Ave, Brooklyn, sponsored by Chashama. In 2016 the multipart tabletop cityscape, “Video City,” appeared in the show LAND AIR PLACE at Project Artspace in Manhattan.


“Sheltering-in,” in order to focus on artwork, is something artists do in the best of times. Being asked to do this for the sake of personal and community safety for this artist wasn’t a stretch. While witnessing the news and sights and sounds of the pandemic saddened and opened my heart, my private acts as an artist gave me comfort and even joy. My lifelong struggle, even before the pandemic, has been between feeling locked down due to my cultural experience growing up female, and a strong drive to “open up.” Being in “lock down” for external, legitimate reasons, provided a sense of relief, while I was further freed to “open up” in the pursuit of, and exploration of my art practice.

My work addresses questions concerning the complex and changing world we inhabit and our “mixed reality,” living between physical and digital/virtual contexts; are we our everyday, familiar, material past, or our digital future, and is this apparent “mixed reality” of the moment to be embraced or resisted. Is the digital present the bells and whistles of an unchanged and familiar humanity, or does it define us and the future? This project is embodied in two and three dimensional wall works, installations, and tabletop cityscapes, made using video, inkjet-printed video stills, and diverse materials.

My primary working materials, video and video stills, are from the same source but utilized in immaterial and material forms. Video is light and motion, while the video stills are a material expression of the live videos. These video stills have been exported from my short videos, imported into a page layout program and often arranged and printed out as lengths of consecutive video stills. I fold and roll these to make shapes I then build sculptures with.

Recently, during the 2020-2021 pandemic, I’ve been collaging two dimensional wall works from torn and shaped video stills. This current body of work began in 2019 as large 3-D wall works which referenced multiple qualities of “light”: the light of the “soul” that combine the internal and external; light that’s both here and not as a new thought originates; radiant and funky city light; the light that animates video and makes it real to our eyes; and light captured and made material in video stills, and in these current works symbolically present as orange and yellow, pigment printed on paper.

In the development of my art my drive has been in looking through the video media shapes and structures I’ve made, toward forming an embodiment of the present and the future. This embodiment is based in personal experience and the sensation body, and also in a determination to reach beyond the self, and beyond the personal moment. A propelling motive in my work history and process has been in reaching beyond the limited roles provided for women and enforced by the social standards which I encountered as a young woman and young artist. Another major influence on my art has been the raw and nurturing influence of the urban environment that’s been my home as an adult, and speaks to me continually about the future, and our direction as a society.

Francis Hsueh

Home Office’, April 2020, 12”x16” Watercolor on Cold Press Paper

‘Fresh Bread on Parchment Paper’, July 2020, 12”x16” Watercolor on Cold Press Paper




Creativity fuels Francis Hsueh’s life. He sketches his fellow commuters on the subway and loves the challenge of depicting life in all its detail, no matter the medium, but is particularly drawn to the ephemeral yet timeless qualities of watercolor. Francis lives in Washington Heights with his wife, two sons, and Fluffy.


I paint with watercolors to capture everyday moments and have a particular fondness for urban scenes. I love the challenge of imbuing life into a familiar scene and always carry a sketchbook or camera to document compelling subjects. With instincts honed through photography and filmmaking, I compose my paintings well before sitting down for a pencil sketch.

Since early 2020, I’ve been painting scenes in and near my home in Washington Heights as a way to seek beauty in dark times. Whether it’s a classic car, a steaming loaf of fresh bread, or a collection of Japanese soda bottles, my work reflects the inspiration and solace I found around me. My bedroom became the ‘Home Office’, where my wife and I setup our laptops and makeshift desks, even unintentionally replicating the side by side layout from my actual office environment. We count ourselves extremely fortunate to have been able to work remotely throughout this period. Painting this scene, with our bed and myriad possessions filling the room around us, was a testament to that unique period of our lives. Like others during that time, I tried various new skills. A new hobby I picked up was breadmaking, and "Fresh Bread on Parchment Paper” shows an early loaf of Dutch oven bread that I made in our kitchen during the summer of 2020. I don’t recall how many loaves I made that summer, but once I started, it was so much fun that I couldn’t stop.

My works during the pandemic reflect my existing passion for honoring our shared spaces and depicting life where others might not see it.

Brooklyn artist Jennie Booth’s work is cerebral and challenging in its quietness.

Widely exhibited, her recent shows include a solo exhibit at the Sheen Center For Thought and Culture, NYC and the international sculpture festival, Socha a Objekt XX in Bratislava, Slovakia. Significant to her practice are the many residencies and grants she has been awarded; City Artist Corps Grant, artAmari (Crete), Cill Rialaig (Ireland), Mano Y Mente (New Mexico), and the prestigious Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Program, to name a few. From a humorously scathing Wall Street Journal review to positive words from New York Time’s Roberta Smith, Booth has a rich bibliography that spans print and digital genres. She maintains a Brooklyn studio through the ChaShaMa Space-To-Create Program.


During the NYC Pause, I decided a way to help alleviate my isolation and stress was to create a Covid-Diary, documenting my experience during this unique time. As someone who enjoys doing crossword puzzles, I made it part of the project to do a puzzle each day and then use parts or all of it in a spontaneous collage drawing. I noted a diary entry about my day on one edge and the top news headlines I saw on my Apple and Google newsfeeds on another. These drawings represent days 3, 23, 44, 68, and 211 of the shutdown. All together I did 366 crossword puzzle collages. The project gave me a focus during those empty, silent days and posed a challenge to my creative process. And yes, I still enjoy doing crossword puzzles!

JoAnna Mendl Shaw

Untitled Doodles (Various) 2020-21



Veteran choreographer and dance educator, JoAnna Mendl Shaw has been devising performance works for stage, rural and urban landscapes since the 1980’s. Her body of interspecies work initiates visceral engagement with the natural and cultural environment. Redefining the possibilities for dance-making, Shaw’s research into the human-equine dialogue began in 1998. Her company, The Equus Projects, tours throughout the States and Europe creating site-specific works through immersive collaboration with local equine and arts communities. An internationally recognized dance educator, Shaw has taught on faculty at NYU, The Juilliard School, Alvin Ailey, Princeton, Mount Holyoke and Montclair State. Shaw is the recipient of NEA Choreographic Fellowships and multiple NEA grants for Interdisciplinary Performance. She has brought her somatic practice of Physical Listening into elementary schools and academic think tanks, into the Strategic Studies group at the Naval War College and NYU Medical school. She is a certified Laban Movement Analyst and the author of the 2021 book, Physical Listening, A Dancer’s Interspecies Journey, where 150 of her doodles appear throughout the book.



I am a choreographer, not a visual artist. However during the pandemic, began doodling, in part to occupy my restless hands during long Zoom meetings! With each doodle I began with a single-line outline - a diagonal serpentine, or a swirling border - or I made a grid of odd shapes that contoured the negative spaces between the shapes. Faces emerged, animals, designs. Once the first idea was on the page I tasked myself with to follow just that one concept. Well over 200 doodles later, I continue to be surprised by the creatures that seem to emerge. A selection of 100 doodles are on my Equus Projects website: https://www.equus-onsite.org/jms-doodles

Julian Silverman

"Social Distancing" black and white photography



My name is Julian Silverman and I'm an 18 year old street and cityscape photographer from the Upper West Side. I am a senior at the Horace Mann school, where I take film and digital classes. However, the majority of my photography takes place outside of school. I have always been inspired by the people, culture, and overall energy of New York City. Throughout my photography career, I have documented New Yorkers and their cultures. I often use the city's recognizable cityscapes, bridges, and streets as a backdrop.




Taught photography to At-Risk kids through NYC Summer Youth Employment Program (SYEP) in East Harlem


Through business with separate EIN, sell original works at art shows and through my own street stand and website


Choose featured photography reflecting New York City street and cityscape scenes twice per week


Participated in discussion around capturing the essence of Black Lives Matter protests though photographer. Was one of 3 panelists along with Professional Flo Njala and was one of four photographers representing various fields


Introduced and organized photography exhibit at Horace Mann campus featuring artists reflections of the Black Lives Matter protests in NYC


Provided photographs and assisted in sourcing for potential segment on Black Lives Matter

This quote sums up how I feel about my photography:

“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.” Robert Frank

I use photography to express my interpretation of the world around me. Photography allows me to interact with people I would otherwise not be able to engage with. My camera act as a bridge to connect with people photograph.

My choice of subject comes from my interest in ideas about human realty and intuition. I enjoy finding photographs that capture sincere moments. I photograph people in their natural environment because I want to preserve the moment. I use a Sony a7 full frame mirrorless camera. The a7 uses a 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor with a low-pass filter and on-chip phase detection.

Originally, I started taking photos because I was interested in exploring human rights and identity. I am a self-taught photojournalist based in New York City and Dominican Republic. Since my days as a high school student I was very concerned with the issues that affected the Dominican diaspora in New York City. Being a photography enthusiast allowed me to see these issues from a different lens. Photography afforded me the opportunity to approach different people within the community including the community leaders of the time to confront these different issues. Using the camera as my tool, to voice these issues and facilitated my interaction and approach towards people. It wasn’t until my college years that I became aware of the important role women play in our community. As ironic as it sounds, me being a woman in a patriarchal society it is very hard to understand this. From that moment on, my work was mainly focused on the different activities that women were performing in our community in their daily lives, in the arts, in school, in the political arena, education, etc. My work as a photographer has consisted in exposing the inequalities I see everywhere I go.

When people see my work, I’d like them to feel that moment of shared emotion and experience. Photography is a source of some of my utmost pleasure.


Monday March 16, 2020 marked the beginning of the COVID-19 global pandemic in New York City. On this day, the world came to a standstill and life as it was known stopped. Millions of establishments closed their doors, some forever, while online businesses flourished and became the new normal.

The virus spread rapidly and some of the immediate measures were: social distancing, isolation, curfews and lockdowns. This led to vast underemployment/unemployment, widespread of hunger, and an upsurge in homelessness just to mention some of the immediate impact of the pandemic.

We all have been affected by the pandemic, However, the impact is felt differently depending on our status as individuals and as members of society.

I, for example, was overwhelmed working from home but had to adjust. I was forced to learn many new computer applications, to better support my students with their online learning. Nonetheless, I was lucky that I didn’t get exposed to the virus while keeping a tiny part of society “functioning.”

During the first 100 days of the pandemic, I illustrated a photographic diary of everyday life at Inwood, NYC. I exposed the dreadful and unfortunate situations that my community faced during those dark days of uncertainty.

I, also, became more aware of the importance of self-care and mindfulness.

The COVID-19 global pandemic that masked people, unmasked the world nations sanitary system

I’m a New York based artist in Manhattan, focusing on drawing and painting. Besides attending RISD and receiving a BFA with honors from Pratt Institute in drawing, I have a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Goddard College and extensive postgraduate training in Narrative Therapy in both Chicago and Cambridge, MA.

While not a direct influence on my art, the underlying philosophy of innovative language, power and narrative energizes and strengthens my creative practice.


My art has focused continuously on a personal vision with a very strong sense of linear evolution. I work in ongoing series of drawing / paintings derived from the same imaginary or landscape-like source and explore the inherent, expressive meanings in that image by returning to the original drawing structure in each new work, searching for meaning content in the nuances found and elaborated in each new piece.

This is a particularly contemporary concern relating to the work of artists like Vija Celmins or Jim Dine, but extending back through artists like Morandi, Picasso and Monet.

What has always fascinated me is the nature of psychic energies––the sixth sense we all possess to varying degrees that allows us to be receptive to the subtle energies and signals in our surroundings and inner landscape. It is this tension between positive and negative energies that are not separate from nature but are forces of invisible phenomena that can be felt, not seen.

My work is intuitive and direct, using unforgiving materials that resist erasure. This demands that my love of detail doesn’t overwhelm the negative space and allows subtractive techniques to create light and energy to then become the subject.

"Between Ambiguous Loss and Tenuous Hope" explores an otherworldly space of highly charged energy. Using China marker, acrylic, ink and graphite on watercolor paper, this series of drawing / paintings was created in the summer of 2021 during the Covid-19 Pandemic in New York. Like many residents, I was sequestered and isolated in my apartment.

What unconsciously emerged in these intense, kinetic works were glimpses of bird imagery, in light or slightly shaded negative space. In the unnatural silence of a great city without its usual street noise, the sounds of songbirds became a prominent daily occurrence. As losses escalated, this reminder of the natural world prevailing gave hope, however tenuous. Where birds might ominously appear as omens of doom, they also offer the possibility of escape.

The intention to avert negative forces is the basis of my ritual in creating art that carries psychic energy against the darkness beyond our control. In describing my work, the Lexington Herald-Leader wrote, “Its power lies in its ability to invite and unnerve simultaneously.”

"Between Ambiguous Loss and Tenuous Hope" is my response of resilience to the Pandemic and invites the viewer to respond with intuitive strength and imagination.

"NEST" 28 x 40 Oil: terraskin-paper



The idea of pillows as “dream catchers” intrigues me- pillows contain our breath and dreams! My series of bed and pillow paintings are sensual and about relationships.The work I am submitting uses images of beds and pillows to convey the emotion of isolation and despair during Covid.

“Out of Time” expresses overwhelming loss and despair though color and texture, The work includes torn fabric collage and is on archival prepared unprimed canvas. In both “Homestay” and “Nest: the bed is trapped in tight suffocating space. There is isolation and particularly in Nest, a sense of withdrawal. The paintings hint at the passage of time in the same way as images of light and shadow describe a fleeting moment. “The Gift” is an expression of guarded optimism and hope.

Peter Cramer (aka Peewee Nyob) - Called by i-D Magazine as " radical queers creating a powerful community through progressive politics, community gardens, wild parties, and colorful performance,” Peter is multi-media artist/performer, co-founder of the art garden Le Petit Versailles and non profit Allied Productions, Inc. His work has been presented by Anthology Film Archives, Danspace Project, ABC NO Rio, MIX NYC, Hermann Nitsch Museum, Microscope Gallery, FRISE/Hamburg, Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona, New Museum, Deitch Projects, Visual AIDS and Venice Biennale.

Most recently invited to collectively create AIDS OS Y Version 10.11.6, a zine for Lost and Found Platform Danspace Project 2016, and presenting Spaghetti Wrestling performance at Museo Hermann Nitsch, Naples, Italy.

With Jack Waters, my partner of 40 years, they created of Allied Productions Inc, a non profit arts umbrella in 1981, served as directors of ABC No Rio alternative art collective from 1983-1990 and founded Le Petit Versailles (1996) a NYC community garden.

Peter Cramer lives and works in New York CIty. Other artistic collaborations include Kembra Pfahler, Barbara Hammer, Geoff Hendricks, Lorraine O’Grady, Stephen Winter, Carl George and Ethan Shoshan.

Further histories are in various books including Alternative Histories: New York Art Spaces, 1960 – 2010 and Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Generation and is subject of oral histories conducted by ACT UP Oral History Project (#50) and Art Spaces Archives Project of Smithsonian Institution/Archives of American Art.

Films have been preserved with the support of Estate Project for Artists with AIDS and National Film Preservation Fund

Residencies include the Emily Harvey Foundation, Harvestworks, and Yaddo.

Recipient of 2014 Kathy Acker Award,


C OVID TIMES is a photographic portfolio that serves as diary of the tumultuous times of the last two years living thru the pandemic and protests against violence against people of color. It also includes documentation of 2 major artistic events - Generator: Pestilence Part 1 and In The Realm of Anansi from Assisi that I was working on both as covid emerged and continued thru the summer of 2020. That the theme of Generator is specifically about how diseases affect culture having survived the worst part of the 1980's AIDS crisis, it is uncanny and unsettling too that covid affects the entire world in an altered echo of that same uncertain time. As a collaborative team with Jack Waters , we are known for our experimental cross disciplinary multimedia works that encompass experimental, non narrative, documentary and personal history strategies. We bring a broad based knowledge and technical skills to practices of socio-political and cultural engagement responsive to issues of ethnic, sexual /gender identity, AIDS activism and archival histories using the mediums of photography, film/video, installation and performance to engage and develop ideas that seek to value the process of creation as one of the most highly regarded part of the experience rather than the end result of a final “product”.

Our languages are what connects us. Abstract visual language is the territory I am exploring. I used to write, then I drew writing. I bridged the gap between verbal writing and its non-verbal calligraphic counterparts through asemic writing. Asemic writing is a kind of mark making that looks like writing but has no semantic value. It is ancient as well as contemporary. (See Peter Schwenger’s scholarly study “Asemic The Art of Writing” (2019). Asemic writing enabled me to explore architectural structures of language without adding furniture. I drew abstract sentences and paragraphs, poems as well as entire stories. I also drew abstract comics and graphic novellas. I have created numerous visual books from this work, both one-of-a-kind and commercially printed.

Expanding my exploration of mark-making languages led me to considering sound. Sound has a written language of staves and notes, called music. But what of sound that is outside of music, ambient sound, that is always present everywhere. Since sound is invisible, it is wide open to visual representation. Some of my drawings delve into interior regions of a sound, others explore duration and pattern, intervals and vibrations. I invent rather than transcribe. I have sometimes used the term asemic music to categorize this work.


Just before lockdown, a friend gave me a sheaf of blank music pages, vintage stock. I occupied the pages and myself by furiously mimicking the panic that was permeating everything in those first months of lockdown, before we had factual information, when the streets were deserted and friends were absent --and the vaccine had not been developed. I just drew, in ink, letting the pages accumulate. No doubt the pervading silence of those days, accentuated the noise of my mind. The energy was frazzed, relentless, unstable. There was no specific beginning and no end in sight.

Eventually I scanned and edited these pages and made a book (available at Printed Matter, NYC and Amazon) entitled Corona Panic Score.

I have a multi-disciplinary practice and let the idea choose the medium, incorporating drawing, bookmaking, video, photography, and sculpture, separate and all together.

My work circles human mark-making through history:- how we have touched the world. I often thread together macro-micro layers from nature, religion, and human interactions, introducing the possibility of new relationships. When exploring these residual traces, and ethers caused by the actions of body, speech, and mind I consider how might their histories affect our present conditions and in what ways can we interpret them before considering our future actions?

IG: @sethpaintsus



Seth Ruggles Hiler received an MFA from the New York Academy of Art and BFA from Syracuse University. He is the Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Bard High School Early College Manhattan where he brings his creative process into the classroom, partnering with local organizations and facilitating community engagement through the arts. He is the Artist in Residence and Bushwick Abbey in Brooklyn and is represented by Leonides Arts NY, where he is the Director of Programming.


Seth Ruggles Hiler paints moments of experience and through layering of imagery, he allows the viewer to unearth their own emotional take or even narrative. As he moves into more expressive abstraction in his painting, it allows for a dimensional layering of these memories - of his own experiences, or even those imagined by studying a family member’s documentation of the past. This process became even more essential during the pandemic, as all we had to connect to most physical places and people was memory, our unearthing and rearranging of moments from our past, and connecting them to our surreal present and undetermined future.

Seth defines his work as ‘abstract realism.’ Each image is based on something real, whether painted from life or from other documentation, but each image is abstracted, for as he believes, that is what painting does. It breaks down form into more limited shapes and colors and tones and gestures. When puzzled together, they can build back up into something understandable. When layered, the hiding and seeking of imagery allow for so many possibilities. Hiler may know his sources, as they are his experiences and observations, but he is hopeful that each viewer’s takeaway varies - may even be different every time one viewer takes in the image, so that the artist may leave behind an opportunity for an abstracted uncovering and a connection to what is real.

Song Rao is an environmental researcher/ artist lives in Brooklyn, NYC whose work discusses the interaction between people, society and natural environment.

Coming from Beijing China, Rao has completed his second master degree in Sustainable Environmental Systems at Pratt Institute Brooklyn. Combining with his previous professions in stage art and communication, he aims to create a new language to link up with local community to reconsider the adverse environmental impact and social impact by human activities.


From March 2020, Rao started to collect his used face masks. Until today, he has already collected more than 600 pieces of used disposable face masks from different sources. Some of the masks came from his own, some from classmates and friends, some from the streets and also Rockaway 90th beach.

The initial goal of the project was to understand the environmental impact by the production and recycling process of disposable face masks. Through the time, more and more arguments of wearing masks popped up from the media and public groups, all holding different opinions. Face masks are no longer just a personal protective equipment with a public health view, they also carry many messages.

In early 2021, Rao made a decision to use Face Mask as a symbol to discuss the interrelationship of public health emergency and personal choice. He cleaned all the masks and collabed with multiple artists, aiming to use young people's accepted language to talk about the matter.

For many years, I concentrated on traditional landscapes in a large format. I used my own photographs and sketches as the basis for my work. Photography has been one of my many passions throughout the years

Besides the large canvas paintings, I added smaller canvases and a new technique. My new approach can either start with pencil applied directly to canvas or at some other point. I then use palette knife and brush or objects to create an abstract landscape...At 'that' point in the process I search for figurative suggestions and movement within the paint. Finally, in delicately rendered marks, I address the details of the landscape Unfailingly, music helps and guides me as I work.

The process requires time. I find that I am spending many weeks on a relatively small 8x10 canvas in between painting larger paintings at the same time. Yet for me, the rewards are incalculably rich. Exhilarating freedom, confidence-inspiring command.

The time I've spent at the Artist in Residency at Carter Burden/ L. Covello Mono Printing in East Harlem has influenced my work in painting. Also, this process is similar, in which I can spend much time adding to my original print. Collage has become a go to medium for me for the last 5 years using my own prints to add to backdrop prints.


Back story - During the Pandemic - What was Lost and Found.

My personal Vision:

So many things lost, so many things taken away. The one thing that can never be lost or taken is our creative spirit, it is the part of us that keeps us from a world of only ordinary things. When painting could not be done drawing is found, collage is found, small art books are created that especially delight my daughter and we find a time from long ago.

So we continue to create, we really don’t have another option.

"You Are Here" Mono-Type, Mixed Media

While during the middle of the quarantine, John and I took a walk through Central Park - The park was much busier than it was at the beginning and while I sat and drew on my print, I heard snippets of peoples conversations - here and there.

I was compelled to jot down what I could hear. It dawned on me while there, that the Universe, the World, the United States, New York State, New York City, and lastly Central Park - went through a ragging Pandemic and we were all in the same box!

Hence the name “ You Are Here”. ( find the Box with the dot )

Suzanne Russo

"Testing Lines" 7"x"10 marker sketch on paper

"Bronx Bound" 8"x18" gouache on cold press watercolor paper



Suzanne Russo is an emerging NYC based artist. She is inspired by her love of the city & walks around her neighborhood, Washington Heights .Influenced by working 20 years as a fashion designer, she is drawn to interesting mixes of color, pattern and texture. She looks to capture the beauty of her neighborhood & surroundings in a real way using primarily marker & inks.


Through my artwork I try to show the beauty and energy of Washington Heights. I depict in a realistic way the every day life and architecture focusing on little details. A can of soda left on a bench, the graffiti on a sign post or a plant on a fire escape, no detail is too small. It's the details that can help evoke a sense of being here in the moment. I hope to give viewers a glimpse of what life is like in Upper Manhattan and inspire love and respect for the neighborhood that I call home.

Tamara Wyndham

"In Support of Essential Workers During the Pandemic" 16 inch diameter, 2020, contact hand print, acrylic on canvas




Tamara Wyndham has been making art all her life; encouraged by her mother, an artist. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, she studied traditional drawing and painting at California State University, Long Beach; and more experimental drawing, book works, and performance at the University of California at Irvine.

Ms. Wyndham has been awarded artist residencies at the Henry Street Settlement, the Kate Millett Art Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, the Mariz Ceramic Workshop in the Czech Republic, Fundación Valparaíso in Mojácar, Spain, and an artist’s fellowship from Earthwatch to work in Orce, Spain.


I made this painting during the beginning of the pandemic in support of essential workers and their need for protective equipment, such as gloves, which were in short supply. This painting was used to make a sticker and a button.

I am a late-life self-taught artist living and working in New York City. My work is inspired by my surroundings; the shapes and colors of a constantly changing city. You can see my work on Instagram @tonynyartist.


During the pandemic I couldn't use any of the studios where I paint. I was stuck at home, a small studio apartment with no room to set up an easel. Working at my table I was able to create mixed media collages on paper filled with my thoughts and fantasies of the world.

Virginia Mallon

Covid Returns 2020, 28x42, oil painting





Virginia Mallon is an American artist (painter/photographer). She is a graduate of Queens College of the City University of New York and apprenticed with Indian Space artist Robert Barrell. In addition to her art practice, she is a co-editor/curator of The Fat Canary Journal and Gallery, an online platform that celebrates and shares the work of emerging and contemporary visual artists.


Inspired by Arte Povera, I paint on slate, burlap, and other found items, as well as fabric and traditional canvas. I also take photographs using an old SONY digital camera and an iPhone. I do not follow the creed that good art needs to be a pretty picture or made using traditional materials. Following the mantra “grow where you are planted” I use locally found objects.

My work, created with a female point of view, contemplates religious, historic, and mythological legends, nautical spaces, personal histories, and the psychological undercurrents of contemporary society.

Perhaps intensified because of the pandemic, and having had Covid-19 myself, I am fascinated by ghosts and the afterlife and the long reaching consequences of trauma. This piece, titled Covid Returns, was painted in June 2021, two months after my second moderna vaccine, and right after learning that I had again contracted a case of Covid-19 as a breakthrough case.

It depicts a shroud colored Lady Liberty, wearing a crown of vaccines, surrounded by floating Covid germs.

Yu Zhang

1. Praying Hand 10x10" 2020 oil on canvas

2. Invisible Spring 30x36" 2020 oil on linen



Zhang Yu was born in Beijing, China. She graduated from Beijing Science Technology College with a degree in Art Design in 1994, and continued her study at the Central Academy of Fine Art for another two years to refine her master program training in oil painting. After leaving the academy, she developed her own style and created works that reflect the political climate of the China at that period. Her subjects included political figure such as Mao’s wife Jiang Qing and a series on a new generation of empowered Chinese city girls, these paintings mirrored China as an emerging superpower. At the same time, Chinese contemporary art was being recognized on the international level for the first time.

In 1998, Yu relocated to the United States. She began to explore her art within a new culture and develop her vision through everyday life. A sense of self-identity began to emerge in her paintings. Subjects such as female figures, popular cultures and media permeated in her works. By the time she began her MFA studies at the City College of New York in 2007, her paintings matured and she established a unique style that challenges the notions of ideal beauty and self-identity.

Yu has received recognition such as the Koan J. Baysa Award in 2008. During her career, Yu has numerous solo and group shows in the United States, Japan and China. She has shown in Nasu-Kougen Museum, Japan; International Arts Festival ShangHai, China; and many galleries in New York City area including Gallery 456, Walter Wickiser Gallery, Hans Weiss (Ct), Thomas Erben Gallery, Artists Space, Exit Art, Ethan Cohen Fine Arts and White Box.

Zhang Yu currently lives and works in New York.


The pandemic caused our lives to passively return to its most basic state. When all the prosperity receded, people began to re-examine themselves and their relationship with the world. Those trivial matters of life that have been neglected by us are magnified and focused into a ritual. For example, our reliance on masks and gloves, and the transition from face-to face social interaction to online meetings. These seemingly absurd behaviors may be the living conditions of human beings in the future.

This series of my works tries to bring people’s attention to the details of certain physical actions. The description of these unreasonable self-protection measures and subconscious actions, such as washing hands or praying while wearing gloves, reveals people’s helplessness and fear of the epidemic. The seemingly familiar but meaningless actions in the picture make people feel that we seem to be living in a surreal world today.

What the work wants to show is the contradiction of opposites, the conflicts between reality and illusion, tradition and technology, as well as culture and ethnicity. The current questions and challenges of our strong desire for a sense of security that gradually awaken people’s wisdom and try to understand and surpass ourselves with the interaction in this impermanent world.

My work floats in an unframed space. I draw and I paint but I think sculpturally. My flat boldly colored shaped painting-sculptures, paintings that look like sculptures, are positioned to convey infinite air and unlimited possibilities. Shapes are created on canvas under wooden dowels, or simply canvas pieces. During the onslaught of Corona I was keeping it simple, working at home, making mediums from what was at hand; Assam Tea, Turmeric, Blueberries, Saffron, and Beets. The simplicity of drawing materials, allows me to connect with marks and the paper without interference.

Zhen Guo

"Enclosed by the Invisible Inevitable" Zhen Guo, 2020; Fabric, yarn, and acrylic on a burlap backing; 150 X 250 CM

website: www.ZhenGuoArt.com

Facebook: @zhenguoart

Instagram @zhenguoart


Zhen Guo, a Chinese-American artist and curator was born in Rizhao, Shandong, China. Inspired by art early in life she graduated from the Fine Arts Department of Shandong Art School in 1976. One of only two women admitted to her class, Guo graduated from the Chinese Painting Department of the China Academy of Art in 1982 and stayed on as a teacher at the Chinese Painting Department.

Zhen Guo was one of the earliest explorers of female ink art after the Cultural Revolution. In 1986, she came to the USA to study at the San Francisco Art College. In 1987 she went to the School of Art of York University in Canada as a visiting scholar. Moving to New York City in 1988, she set up Zhen Guo Art Studio.

Zhen Guo is known in the international art world as a female ink art activist and an Asian American contemporary ink art pioneer. She has participated in numerous international art exhibitions and has long been committed to exploration of international contemporary women's art. Sotheby’s and other international auction companies have repeatedly promoted her work. In recent years she has organized and participated in the “Existence” International Women's Art Exhibition in Changsha, China, “Please Touch, Body Boundaries” exhibition at the Mana Museum of Contemporary Art in the United States, and “Asian Women Artists Exhibition” at South Korea’s Jeonbuk Museum of Art. She also participates in academic lectures at universities at home and abroad. She is currently a member of the International Women's Art Association, the North American Artists Association, The Chinese Artists Association, and a visiting professor at several art universities.

Zhen Guo currently lives and works in New York City.


Enclosed by the Invisible Inevitable (Zhen Guo 2020, fabric yarn and acrylic on a burlap backing 150 X 250 CM)

During the Covid crisis everyone has been affected by the isolation and fear of this unknown disease. We have not known where to turn or how to proceed with our lives, or if this new reality would ever end and allow us to return to normal. Women have been particularly affected by the lock down. More women are vulnerable through employment as essential workers -- nurses, shop and grocery workers -- and are more often responsible for the care and education of children at home. Their stress is even greater and their health more at risk than male counterparts.

A woman's breast, my major motif for works of feminism, enclose a gendered face. A woman’s breast shows her softness and gentleness but also her strength. She hides them in modesty but when displayed they create fierce reactions. They demonstrate her youth and energy but disclose her age and her decline. They symbolize her virtue and her passion. These breasts, fashioned from fabrics ranging from simple cotton to exotic silks, bring with them the traditions of needle craft and quilting representative of a woman’s skill and importance to her family and society but at the same time the restrictions and limits placed upon her by culture and society dominated by men.

Misshapen by stress fear and an uncertain future, the face could be any one of us. Swarms of Covid enemies are stirred together with her friends and acquaintances. They cannot escape any neither can she. She does not understand what to do, how to escape, how to survive how to recover.
