Keeping your mind pandemic-free
I’m not sure if you have a similar experience, but there are a handful artworks that I regularly think about to help bring clarity to difficult moments. Since the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus and it’s all consuming anxiety, there has been one piece of artwork that has been asking me to come closer and pay attention.
Though it’s a simple piece, it doesn’t give any answers away easily. It tests my ability to see not with the focus my eyes, but with a sense of vision. Its concentric patterns easily lead me in towards the center – but to enter a step deeper requires a special type of faith. A faith in not knowing, not having the answers, not sure what to expect. Only to move forward with white knuckle insistence.
