There has never been a time of such perplexity as the pandemic. Sometimes, it felt surreal. Information changed swiftly and numbers became an indication of either distress or reassurance.
My work is usually solid and precise, inspired by wisdom and reﬂecting spirituality. In this work, I use the perspective of marks and traces, a combination that leaves us with uncertainty and skepticism.
