New York, Spring 2020, COVID-19. A difficult and challenging time. When asked to participate in this project, these images came to mind - A RED HEART, the iconic symbol of love, made in watercolor, soft and maybe melting. A FLAME, also made in watercolor, warm, strong, full of light and full of hope. A PAIR OF SURGICAL GLOVES, cut out in blue paper, as a symbol of the care, comfort and compassion, given to the covid-19 victims by heroic first responders and health workers, here and around the world. A symbol of the embrace we’re not able to give.
