Fire / Wounded Goddess with Trapped Birds

Art by Barbara Sarvis

"In the winter of 2020, Covid19 re-introduced me to several unfinished paintings hanging in my studio. For many weeks I stared at the images on the canvas while listening to the daily news. Feelings of rage, sadness and powerlessness overpowered me regarding immigration, systemic racism, climate change, equal rights and a woman’s right to choose.The paintings could no longer exist as a portrait, landscape or floral, but instead became visual stories that I had to tell as a catharsis for change."
