MICHAEL PUTORTI (USA)
Linocut print with coloured pencils
30 x 45 cm
At the beginning of the year, the question we always asked was “What were your New Year’s resolutions?” Now that we were three months into 2020, the question we ask is “Can we ever come back from this?” And the answer is; yes. Yes we can, and we will. That is why I created my ‘Jaguar’ print. A piece consisting of a lone figure, stepping out of the darkness that surrounds it. And despite the darkness, it remains strong and proud. I know that this stands true for us as well during these trying times. We will step out of our quarantines and self-isolation stronger than ever before. Looking at this piece, I feel a sense of strength and a sense of hope. I feel confident that we as a nation, will be okay in the end.
