ARTIST STATEMENT:

The piece depicts a man and woman sleeping during the beginnings of the first wave of COVID-19. The Orisha Goddess Yemaya hovers over the couple as a representative of protection in the uncertain times to come as the TV screen gives the latest news updates on the virus. Above the slumbering couple are jars and containers of natural herbs and remedies that they have stocked up on to strengthen their immune system and protect them from the illness. Different forms of spiritual literature sit at the foot of the bed as well as a diffuser on the nightstand. In short the image shows different forms of protection in the midst of the global pandemic that looms outside.
