I have joined 35 other local artists for an art exhibit based on how we are spending our time during this pandemic. The show will open in a couple of weeks in Silver City, New Mexico, where I live. All of the art work must have been executed since March, 2020.I decided to create a wood sculpture that illustrates how mankind is dealing with the virus. It is titled Holding the Space and features three uplifted hands, each helping to keep the Covid-19 virus at bay. Each arm is made from a different pieces of wood, so there is white Arizona Cypress, brown Russian Olive, and black Walnut, representing people from around the world. The virus is oak with brass tacks and support rods. The piece stands about 5 1/2 feet high and is self-supporting. I finished the wood so that it could endure being left outside.
