Heather Lou - "Close at Heart"
About the artwork
Heather C. Lou has been creating a series of block and digital art prints capturing the need of healing and connection during distancing/isolation periods of the COVID-19 pandemic. This piece calls for viewers to use public health practices of staying distanced and wearing personal protective gear to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 to members of our community. Just because we’re masked or six feet apart doesn’t mean we’re not connected socially, spiritually, psychologically, emotionally, or psychically – it just means that our times together must be creative, innovative, and with radical hope and love at the core.
