Party on the Bottom (Please Stand By)

Acrylic, 2020

Art in the time of COVID-19. It is 2020 and the world is battling an invisible killer. We are under states of emergency across the globe, of which we have not felt since WWII. We are confined to our homes, we are watching TV, we are watching our neighbors. We are together alone, the front lines within our safe and warm homes. We are separated from family, friends, and work is happening from home, or not at all. We are having video calls and Zoom meetings, Facetime chats and Tik Tok dance sessions. Perhaps the best thing about working from home, no need for pants! Feels like a retro dream, blast from the past, being acted out in the future.
