Paintings, 2020 - 2021

What happens in the dark? How does a community’s behavior change through imposed restrictions and regulations?

Seeing the World’s superpowers playing war games via a race for a cure seems to be far from mankind’s humanity, and much closer to economic and weapon games.

In Zimbabwe the Government abused its power of lockdown measures to crush the Opposition Party. The rise of corrupt systems, informal markets, hunger, and survival at sword’s edge. I watch the destruction of the informal markets – street vendors, people who live day to day – in Zimbabwe and Worldwide.
