NDMOA Art in Isolation compiles curated artwork created in isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic. My artwork, along with hundreds of others, are part of an experimental work where in all the work submitted is made into a large quilt titled #alonetogether
“Our goal is to create one large piece made up of all of your individual images.” from the NDMA press release.
ART IN ISOLATION
April, 2020 – when we can gather in groups again
We asked that you submit images of what you are doing to be creative in this time of social distancing, and you answered our call. We are honored to receive an outpouring of images coming from around the world.
So far we’ve recieved over one-thousand images from hundreds of people. The list below only represents a fraction of the people that have submitted. We’ll update the list as fast as we can.
As a part of this experimental exhibition our goal is to create one large piece made up of all of your individual images. NDMA press release.
The work I submitted: “Snow Day #8”
Update: September, 17 2020
I entered the COVID-19 quarantine and everything came crashing down. My photography business centered around photographing people and representational photographs. A three year project just stopped in one day. I was left with virtually empty hands asking myself, “What will do?” Thoughtfully I contemplateed in silence. I’m not just a photographer of people, but my conceptual photography and photographs would carry me through to see the light on the other side of this pandemic’s darkness.
Thoughts of my father and caring for him as he withered away passively came and went. While watching over him I had a project idea about our relationship roughly titled, Father to Son. I jotted and doodled notes while sitting with him. When the abstract images are created, I think of him and I choose good memories of our connections as a palette for this visual journey.
All this was more than six months ago. I’m still in isolation as our all of us. Thank you NDMOA for taking the first steps with me on one of the most important journey’s of my life.
