Upside Down


Which side is the top?  The sculpture can stand either way bringing into question when it is upside down.  This exemplifies the feeling of disorientation I felt during the lockdown we all endured during Covid.   Having been used to visiting with friends and family often, the isolation of the lockdown required a reevaluation of my life.  After a while, I came to appreciate the time alone in the studio, the comfort of my home which allowed me to walk around both inside and out, the beauty of my surroundings and the closeness of the relationship  between my husband and me. As restrictions were lifted I didn’t entirely resume my earlier routine of being with people so often.  It remains to be seen how that will evolve in the future.  Maybe I still don’t fully realize which side is up.
