Every time we gather at SHARE, we are bringing our own ideas and unique feelings and experiences. They harmonize and contrast, bend and twist, and shuffle together into a detailed tapestry. Every person has their own piece of the world to bring.
I made this painting with that heavy on my thoughts - as this past year has been unprecedented for all of us. I wanted to show that we are still connected in our separation, even if we cannot physically build that special universe as we usually do.
The threads that make up SHARE are always a part of us, stretching far and wide, keeping us connected and reminding us what is important. We may be confined to our own realities, but we are never truly separate. If you pick up your tin can phone, you will hear a thousand voices saying "I miss you, I love you, I'll see you soon.
