There are things happened from external factor that we can’t control. This year global issue is the pandemic of Covid-19, that strike the world which affected to economic and social life. Also in art activities, many are canceled or postpone, and arts ecosystem – artists, galleries, organizers, institutions, etc- should struggle and unite together to survive.
As therapy, I try to count my days, to adjust the new routine to work mostly from home and enjoy most of my studio time. We have to be optimist, that this too shall pass.
