Quarantine diary: If I were a solitary little figurine

by - Tuesday, April 07, 2020

These beautiful, pensive ceramic art figurines created by artist Elizabeth Price capture how we feel in the world as community quarantines and city lockdowns are in effect. As we cocoon in the comfort and safety of our homes, we have the unexpected opportunity to slow down and  look inward  into ourselves. Between the rippling anxiety, the fear and moments of calm that pervade this surreal pandemic experience lies the gift of appreciating the things that we have taken for granted. We have explored the world and now we retreat into ourselves. Who knew that the world would suddenly grind to a halt because of a stealth virus that attacks us at the most primordial, molecular, cellular level?

From the here and now lies an ocean of uncertainty. What will the future be like post-pandemic?  These little figurines seem to express such deep thoughts. If they are alive, what would they be thinking?

"So far yet so near.  We are alone together."

"If only I was in Japan enjoying a hanami picnic and eating strawberry cake."

"When will this pandemic end? Wondering when I can see my friends again."

" A nap is the best way to enjoy a home quarantine."

"What can I bake or cook today?"

" Now I can actually read the books I bought 2 years ago."

" I hate you coronavirus. Please go away already."
