News Feature United Arab Emirates

The recent news frenzy around the Corona Covid-19 virus has left deep impressions on my mind and it keeps coming out in different formats when I am creating.

I did two very specific works, 1 showing my frustration over the panic that is occuring and another which shows positivity towards the future in the form of strengthened DNA from this outbreak.

Both these images were picked up by the National Newspaper in the UAE as part of an article on staying positive in the face of the tough situation.

Happy to see that my art travels across the oceans and to have been able to add something to the discussion.

I find it very difficult to tap into creative energy during these crazy times….but as they say, “art is cheaper than therapy” so I took all the words that I associate with what I am experiencing (fear/paranoia/mediafrenzy/rat/bat/etc) and I made them the basis for the painting

I then let my mind flow on top both with colors and with symbols and this is what came out.

“Future Proof”

Virus are what strengthens our DNA making us stronger as a species. It enters the cell and reprograms the DNA to produce more virus often totally changing the structure itself.
