Portrait of 2020

Devereaux Beauchaine's avatar Devereaux Beauchaine

Isolation was like a flower growing from the cracks in a baren desert. Time blurred together, social engagements ripped from me, no end in sight. There was nothing left to do but paint. I became a machine with a brush, burying my thoughts and emotions in paint; one after another canvas finished, wrapped, and shipped off. The physical space around me became a haven for creativity, while just outside my doors was uncertainty and global treachery. This portrait explores the creative chaos I felt, yet using my art as a vehicle to cope with a global pandemic. A silver lining- a flower in the dessert.
