Foreword
The current COVID 19 times are indeed extraordinary , it is showing the mirror in the face of humanity. In the COVID playground equality , oneness and global togetherness is played in satire . Baring to bone existential realities of mankind , ripping open the shimmering veil of modern progress it is bringing home the basic pointers – human fragility , ego and greed . As anxiety , fear and sadness grips the world in the ever spreading conquer of the tiny speck Carona virus over the world , the earth slowly starts playing a softer music of healing and rejuvenation , giving hope to see the light at the end of the tunnel .
The series of art works are digital in format , abstract expressionist with metaphoric symbolism – interpreting the many facets of COVID 19 times .
