Title: Masked Precarity
Artist: Leena Raudvee
Format: Ink drawing on paper, 22 x 17 inches
This drawing emerges out of a daily drawing practice from the last year of COVID-19 fears, anxieties and isolation, superimposed, by necessity, on ongoing issues of vulnerability, disability and the precariousness of severely limited mobility. As internal self-portraits, these drawings respond to changes in my internally-perceived emotional and physical body, as body in process, and become records of the evolving dis-eased body, engulfed in pandemic anxieties and seeking refuge in self-reflection.
