“This series was born from a deep need to express my emotions during the pandemic. While creating this series, I manipulated the colors and vibrancy until the works became ‘saturated’ with hues, lines and energy. These pieces became linear ghosts representing the emotional rollercoaster that was (and slightly still is) the pandemic. My hope is that you let these linear ghosts and color fields open you up and encourage you to be the person you are meant to be.”—Deena Smith
