This piece of my work exemplifies the unpredictable nature of the lives we live and how we can find beauty and hope in them. With the new outbreak taking place throughout the world, and some areas are more affected than others, our greatest challenge is how we deal with these circumstances and withstand this storm. This contagion has put our whole country on its knees, and we had no choice but to stay in our homes.
The yellow and red strokes used to paint the building symbolize the transformation into prisons of our beautiful houses that we cannot escape even if we want to. The artwork as a whole symbolizes the fact that we are trapped in our homes, looking feverishly at the world outside the limits of our walls to see what is happening.
The eye that stares at the residents reflects sadness, despair, and helplessness about its current state of confinement. However, it still has the resilience and patience to look to the future and wait for events to change for the better.
