"Navigating Common Pathways" is an original work of art by Jackie Sanders.
Acrylic on 48"x36" plywood canvas.
DESCRIBE YOUR PAINTING:
My panel is a conceptual piece that I used to explore the ever-evolving reality that we are facing as the world “opens back up”. COVID-19 is still very much a real threat to the world, however, in our area as vaccines are becoming more widely available restaurants, public spaces and social gatherings are starting to resume which has me thinking- how has this year plus long “pause” of society affected the way we interact with the common spaces we use to regularly inhabit?
A downtown area in particular, like the one these panels will be placed in, once was the foundation for routine foot traffic, business meetings, festivals, and other social gatherings. But will those “post-pandemic” relationships with these spaces reflect the relationship we had with them before? Or are they forever changed?
Roads, walkways, common areas, etc. How will our interaction with these spaces continue to evolve as we open back up? The layering of these abstracted paths will hopefully feel normal again one day.
But only time will tell.
