The turmoil, loss, isolation and unintended transitions brought by 2020 and the pandemic moved me into a deep place of quiet and reflection. Social isolation prevented me from making the kind of work I've always made - portraiture. That loss felt like a little death creatively in the midst of the many greater losses we have experienced during this time. In this liminal state, I flayed about without much purpose, falling prey to insecurity and negative inner voices. It took time to mourn and reflect on these feelings, but I began to go out and "do one thing" each day. I have found space that allows me to embrace the paradoxical nature of the worst and best of times and to make meaningful work that aligns with my spiritual process. 
Metaphorically, bardo can be used to describe times when the usual way of life becomes suspended. Such times can prove fruitful for spiritual progress because external constraints change.
These images are meditations on the process and the quality of the process of transmutation.
