Elbow Room, by Charlotte Tarantola
12" x 16", oil on cotton paper, 2020
Painting series: CROWDED ELEVATORS
If anyone from the near future would have told us this past Valentine's Day that we would be globally practicing "social distancing" to save our lives, in the midst of the entire world grinding to a halt, we would have thought they belonged to the tin foil gang du jour.
And yet, here we are, collectively up in the air with no floor to land in sight, buying toilet paper rolls like beheaded chicken.
We are painting crowded elevators to shoo the fears, to document the absurdity underneath this dantean drama, so the day we become human again, hopefully sooner rather than later, we can use these paintings to retell this sci-fi story.
