The Shift Series is a group of paintings on paper that began in quarantine during the Covid Pandemic in March, 2020. Leaving behind my Philadelphia studio to work from home as the city went into lockdown, I shifted from working on large scale paintings on canvas to intimate 12×12″ works on paper. With over 30 paintings in the series, the Shift series is a continuation of my exploration of hidden networks and my response to the pandemic; how it has exposed the interconnectedness of our world and its rapid spread to every part of the globe. Many of the works incorporate cellular networks of forms, lines or bands of colors that evoke hyperconnectivity. The series is also a record of altering emotional states during quarantine: feelings of containment, tightness, isolation, anxiety, moments of gratitude, and embracing the unfolding of new possibilities.
