The piece created a space for the artist to escape to, even for a moment, as the uncertainties of what the virus can do hit close to home. In this ‘distraction’, the artist lends us her eyes as she comprehends and struggles to maintain equilibrium ‘in the moment’, the one that is juxtaposed to the physical struggles of her loved one. Black edging in is the inevitable that the illness could bring, while other colors—green as hope, blue for strength, white is peace—pushes back on all fronts, successfully. Both art piece and loved one broke through, and we are gifted with a tangible expression of hope.
