Artist Statement for Visualizing 2020 – An Online Exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery
Isolation, anxiety and fear has permeated the year 2020. Those emotions have been profoundly accentuated by the federal government’s complete lack of leadership during the COVID-19 crisis. Living under lockdown, our days blur together. We often ask each other, mostly jokingly, but sometimes seriously, “What day is it?” Each hour of each day feels as if we are wedged into in a single indeterminate moment. It is hard to assess when we will be freed from this grinding cycle. The images selected for this exhibition represent those emotions. —Jon Wollenhaupt
