Randa Fakes LoGerfo: Creativity in a Time of Crisis
Updated: Jun 4, 2020
During the pandemic period I have learned to accept time for what it is, and not to see it as a challenge, but part of reality, wherever we are. As with most people, life’s pace has slowed, and I’ve had the chance to connect with myself. I've felt responsible for my family, especially as the world is shutting down. I wanted to show my children that there is still love and hope, and we have the power to choose and protect. I am very lucky to be in Carthage, Tunisia with my family. Being at the foot of the Mediterranean and seeing the ocean every morning has inspired me to look beyond my traditional limits, and walking the beautifully peaceful beaches and alleys has refocused me on my paintings. If there is no artist, there is no story to tell. One day when I look back on this time period. I want it to be an accomplishment rather than disappointment.
