MFA ’24 Architecture
Nuclear Skies was a piece created in response to the early days of COVID. As most can relate, I found myself back at home, constantly watching the news to see what was happening around the world. I was left feeling a little lost with what to do with all this free time so I turned to art. It became a way for me to express how I was feeling that day, becoming a diary in a sense of what it was like during quarantine. It came to a point during the summer of 2020 where every day just felt more and more unbelievable with what was happening that I was half expecting to look out the window and see a world in which I didn’t recognize. A dream-like world that truly reflected how I was feeling inside. A world depicted in this painting.
