TIC TAC TOE represents the challenges of relationships during 2020; whereas, as human beings our lives were disrupted, fragmented, and isolated. People were dealing with chaos, hopeless strategy with minimal resources, forming a cohesive lifestyle, relearning to live with restrictions, and in confinement. The concept of TIC TAC TOE is understanding the basic game is about strategy and observation. Using Tic Tac Toe games played during isolation orchestrated this concept. I have represented 4 games into social stages; planning, compromising, agitation, and hate vs love. The Xs and the Os represent human interaction during isolation. The use of red, yellow, black, and blue represents the physicality of the moment and the symbolic visual language depicts specific emotions within each color. TIC TAC TOE consists of four 40"x40"drawings executed in primary colors and black. The drawings are stacked and reshuffled to create new color phenomena, abstraction, and emotional statement.
