About the art: “The “Pandemic Paintings” series started in March when shelter-in-place orders were issues due to the coronavirus pandemic. For a few weeks, I shifted my studio practice from The Machine Shop to my apartment where my work had to be small and portable. Working on these paintings during quarantine kept me grounded — my eyes were keen for interesting clouds and gathering images for these paintings motivated me to get outside. The series that resulted in different skyscapes against a bold horizon that starts as an alarming red and gradually transitions to a warm, hopeful, golden yellow. The work reflects a progression through the uncertainty, fear, and anxiety caused by the pandemic, with varied skies reminding us that both change and beauty are constant. “Pandemic Paintings” end on a note of hope, maintaining the perspective that we will someday emerge on the other side.” -Emily Sullivan
