Tin Angel, mixed media, three panels for a total of 33″ x 11″, arrives rolled in mailing tube.
Tin Angel is one of the illustrations, in a diversity of media, that I created through 2020 for a series I titled The Year of the Plague. I posted them in Instagram accompanied by a quote from a writer that could express the way we collectively and me personally felt going through this once in a century disaster. Contradictory feelings of anxiety and hope, anguish and gratitude. The illustrations are in conversation with the quotes so that each complements the other. Tin Angel is inspired by a song by Joni Mitchel.
I posted a total of 24 between spring summer and fall, together with a new short series (Transit) beginning sporadically in the summer where I was trying hard to hold on to a tenuous feeling of hope.
The postings, together with their original quotes can still be found in Instagram with the hashtag #yotp2020.Summer Will Come, mixed media on watercolor paper, two panels for a total of 28″ x 10.5″, arrives rolled in mailing tube.
