To Heal The World
An international online artistic reflection on mending the brokenness of our global family
Hold On, 2020
Mixed media and gouache on paper
‘Hold on’ is a metamorphic interpretation about seeing beyond the barriers, about understanding the goodness amongst humans, about connecting and respecting each other and our environment. It’s largely up to us now with this pandemic, which direction we pull the vines in, for that decides our future and our children’s future.
As humans, we are naturally intertwined with our environment and our community. However, over time we have built political, religious and economic walls around us. This pandemic is a reminder to look beyond these walls we have unknowingly repressed ourselves in.
‘Hold On’ to our humanity and to the belief that we can be the healers by connecting the broken threads in the fabric of our society. It is up to us now to show our gratitude towards each other and towards our environment through love, compassion and selfless actions. We all are holding on to this hope.
