STORY OF THIS ARTWORK
Freedom is an interesting concept, arbitrary and fickle. During the lockdown, I felt so free, even though there were restrictions on what we could do, and where to go. This picture reflects the essence of the feeling of relief and peace I had at the time. Yet, as I had my fill of restorative solitude, this sense of freedom gave way to the restlessness of enforced confinement.
I’ll keep this image for times when I am getting overwhelmed by social pressures, to look at it and re-live the peace and calm of the early days of quarantine.
