At the turn of this year, I felt compelled to create a grand scale composition of people gathering. Who would have thought that a group of people meeting and enjoying each others company could be perceived as a contentious gesture before this moment in time? This array of unmasked guests is a history painting for our moment, yearning for a return to a time when we can mingle in unlimited numbers.
The crowded interior presents an array of imaginary figures within a spacious room of furniture and artworks, leading to an expansive window that looks out to the stars and the air that we breathe. The human presence inside is depicted as fluid transient forms, some retaining solidity, some half captured and others merely vague traces of existence.
Protective face masks are discarded in places yet the figure outside on the balcony still adorns one... is it over?
