Symbol of Freedom

 

 
The George-Étienne Cartier statue is one of the monuments in Montreal, which is topped by a winged statue – Goddess of Liberty. The concept of liberty has frequently been represented by personifications, so often shown as a female goddess. During COVID-19, there are many people feel that their freedom is taken by the circumstances of pandemic.

Weather in Pictures (May-July, 2020)

The weather in the pictures during and after lockdown (May-July). The elevation of the picture corresponds to the weather that day, e.g. 18 degrees Celcius – 1.8 cm; 30 degrees Celcius – 3 cm. The missing pictures on certain days are located at different section, as I decided to group the Cohen Mural pictures in different seasons (Spring and Summer) and times (sunrise and sunset) into one presentation.

Taking by a Storm – Mixed media

 

This painting serves as a metaphor for COVID-19 that has become a pandemic; it’s coming down like a snowstorm in Fall; nobody expected it, nevertheless, the impact is real and powerful. It’s time for self-reflection and self-contemplation. Be still, as the Icelanders often say: “Þetta reddast” (translated – “it will all work out okay”).

 

During and After the Lockdown

 

The first two pictures describes the emptiness of our streets, especially in a very busy street in Downtown Montreal. The last picture was just after the lockdown, the street was bussling again and there was traffic jam during rush hour.
