The Alone Time is my euphemism for the hours we spend alone because of Covid isolation. I chose artists who work constructs intimacy. The subtle changes of light, the arrangement of forms, the perspectives of objects near and far as well as views that seem to be from above, construct small worlds. Here we are able to see the smallness of the moment and the beauty of the images given to us.
Covid has many lessons. We find ourselves walking the same streets, looking out our windows at the same views, and seeing the details in objects around us. We are truly getting to know every inch of our homes and every view available to us…. if we are watchful.
Being alone is different from being lonely, but there can be an intersection. Some of these works demonstrate that.
