Series “Muted Beauty” an interrogation of beauty during this year
of Coronavirus and isolation.
The works provide a
metaphor for how beauty continues, albeit in a quieter, gentler way, receding
to the background against a tide of change, challenges and impacts. But!
beauty still exists around us, while there is less outlets or opportunities for
it to resonate loudly, it is still there, quieter, and at times faded, swaying
pendulous between resonating and declining, echoing in our feelings as as our
immediate world seems smaller.
Yet the whisper
will continue, it will gradually have a louder voice, its protest against our
loneliness a voice that echoes silently in these times. but for now its
steadfast presence allows for comfort as it lights our journey.
