About the exhibition
VIEW FILES: Portraits from the Pandemic
in conjunction with State of Emergency: Portraits from the Pandemic
At the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Brooklyn-based artist Robert Aitchison began to draw portraits of close friends and colleagues. View some of the rapid sketches he made while connecting on video internet platforms.
The volatile circumstance of quarantining provoked Aitchison to explore the themes of yearning and intimacy; for connection and community. These works express the shifting movement and fractured viewpoints on experiences in virtual spaces. The portraits move beyond resemblance to express the inner emotional and psychological landscapes of the people portrayed.
