Russia’s war in Ukraine is yet another staggering global event and humanitarian crisis resulting in violence, destruction, and loss of life. We witness the attacks in disbelief daily from afar and allied countries watch as the ferocity intensifies resulting in the Ukrainian people losing their cities, their homes, and their families. Unified powers support Ukraine with strategies to impose economic sanctions on Russia and individuals responsible for the invasion with the hopes that crippling Russia’s economy will impede or cease the continuing catastrophic events. It seems the only thing we can do to help Ukraine directly is through unity, advocacy, acts of compassion, and generosity for immediate relief; to provide aid to Ukrainian refugees and to those who remain in the country fighting with unbending patriotism and loyalty.
"Vigil" was created as a gestural prayer, in the spring of 2020, the season of Covid. The sun was shining, but I lit candles on paper for all of the heroes out in battle on the frontlines, who bravely and tirelessly faced Covid-19, an unforgiving pandemic, and its following variants, day after day. From the moment of creating the initial painting, and then the limited edition embellished prints, Project Vigil transitioned from a personal meditation into a wish for unity, hope, fortitude, healing and peace. The embellished images evolved with the ever-changing global news; each one unique as more candle flames materialized, some became brighter, some had diminished. Sparks of yellow, red and orange, vibrant healing blues, floating lights and reflections appeared resulting in collective flow of energy and support as a response to the narrative of need and what is currently happening around the world. Net proceeds continue to support The American Nurses Foundation and the Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund. “Vigil” is now a universal image where light shines for hope and recovery in a fractured world.”
