The narrow images in this series are paired vertical slices derived from panoramas from the Bay Area to the Atacama desert in South America. The images are virtual portals that reflect the artists’ experience of sheltering in place for nearly a year during a global pandemic amidst surging inequities and horrific injustice.  Without travel and with restricted contact with friends and family, they felt their ever growing global perspective suddenly narrowed, flattened and muted.  In several of the pairs, a rolling fog that obscures so much of the landscape appears to be shifting. Longstanding sources of wonder seem to be coming into view again, reflecting the hope and the reality of 2021.  With the most vulnerable receiving vaccinations and a redirection of the country in the offing, American optimism, initiative, and balance look to be on the horizon, in our sights and our hearts. 

The images are presented on Japanese Kozo paper, mounted to a wood substrate, and are sealed in a multilayered wax encaustic.
