(IN)Between

No one could have predicted the onslaught of the Coronavirus, much less the chaos and uncertainty we have endured. It feels like we have been dumped (rather unceremoniously) into a strange in-between state amid the ‘before’ and ‘after’ phase of our lives. We are all in this uncharted territory together. No one has been here before; answers are transient at best. Most of us are struggling to maintain boundaries.

These drawings serve as a metaphor for the “meanwhile-times”, when we are left to discover an unfamiliar path that tests who we believe we are. The moments during these unintentional pauses are a call for us to see that the spaces in-between hold all the possibility.
