This series, begun in early March 2020, is an attempt at limiting the subject matter to a specific concept, with a recurring motif and an imposed panel size. The idea of tempus fugit feels appropriate: this virus has heightened thoughts of our own mortality and, paradoxically, also made us want to speed up time, to move forward quickly towards a reassuring future. We find ourselves caught between having to face death and needing to ignore it all at once: the series is a life-affirming piece about acknowledging death. The inevitable shift from season to season transforms the ebullient energy of spring to the joyful harmonies of summer. Color and movement will only gradually dilute into fall and disappear into winter's shroud of snow. Nature's seemingly disintegrated canvas will, in time, transform into the billowing, budding and buzzing of another spring we cannot yet envisage but uneasily await.
