Curator's Artist Statement from Pandemic Painting Series

Image: Let's Talk About this Elephant in the Room, Shall We?" by Helene Ruiz 16x20 acrylic on canvas 2022

"It's not over folks, as much as we would like it to be, the reality remains. There are many issues remaining, many injustices remaining, many deaths still occurring, global warming still moving faster than we can imagine, oceans are becoming toxic and we eat the fish, pollution sending toxins into the air and we breathe the air. Social media has put too many into "la la" land to the point most cannot even remember reality and has destroyed humanity. We must remember WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES. Consider the others, consider the future, consider the kids who have to deal with this mess. Too much to try and put into words here, I hope you can create more dialogue within your mind and soul as you view this painting." - Helene Ruiz
