With this painting, I wanted to address the effect the pandemic has brought upon our perception of time. I sit and wonder where the last year and a half went – the world was brought to a hault, everyone’s lives were put on pause… but at the same time, things descended into what felt like chaos. Humanitarian riots, rising levels of poverty and all time lows for mental health. I feel like I’ve done nothing, but I’ve been through everything. In this self portrait I am looking back at the viewer – or in this case, the last year and a half of my life. Confused, I’m searching for an explanation. Where did the time go?
