Eileen Karakashian: Quarantine Series

“With these abstract pieces I created on a daily basis, I wanted to infuse these two components – art and learning.  The playfulness of this series is actually representing the opposite of the situation that the world was faced with. The artwork is whimsical, almost childlike with elements of math, English and science homework.  However, art and school are serious matters: during the pandemic, different rules applied than in everyday normal life and even everyday objects underwent transformation. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.”
