“Three Blocks Over” symbolizes our interdependence on one another, as this pandemic has shown. It is painted in hues of blue, brown and green with a white background.
I was familiar with the term “Three Block War” from my two sons’ service during the war in Iraq. This painting came from an evolution of that phrase mashed up with what we witnessed during the pandemic, the intense interdependence we all experienced during the shutdown.
Communities came together to help one another, to run errands for those medically vulnerable who were unable to shop for themselves, and they celebrated their local healthcare workers and first responders who were on the front lines of this new “war.”
