    Artwork

    I made this installation to visualize the devastating effect of Covid 19 on the human respiratory system. The four masks symbolize a memorial to all those people who have died including doctors, nurses among others. The use of different tones of red as well as the different action painting style on each mask is a reference to some of the different ethnic groups affected by the disease like Asians, Caucasian , Africans and Indians.
