COVID AND EQUALITY
Covid-19 deaths during quarantine
Started in April 2020, this painting was meant to represent the number of US deaths due to COVID-19. I kept counting and painting and it turned into an equal sign and even when I tried to shift the masses through color, they kept going back to an equal sign. Then in May George Floyd was killed, I knew why the equal sign was there, and I stopped painting. There are 22,000 people.
