About the Artwork

On July 1st, the BC Health Orders relaxed and masks were no longer mandatory. Overnight, a sense of normalcy began to settle again in Fort St John. That day, when I went shopping with baby, I quickly realized that what felt 'normal' to us, was completely abnormal for her.

Our baby was born in August 2020, in the middle a global pandemic. For the entirety of her short 11-month life, her 'normal' was a sea of smile-less faces at the store, spending most days in the safety of our home, hugging grandparents through a iPad screen, and watching Mom jump at every cough and sneeze. The day we walked into Canadian Tire sans masks, she was mesmerized with every smiling face beaming down at her. Her 'normal' had been shattered in the reestablishment of our own.

This was the inspiration for my conceptual piece, "Mama!" I wanted to capture the perspective of the last year and a half from the eyes of the aptly named 'pandemic babies,' and to encourage audiences to reflect on the unknown long-term developmental and social consequences of babies and young children growing up in this alien world engulfed by a global pandemic.
