Artist Laura Ahola Young

How has your art practice been affected by the pandemic?
I am a natural introvert. The time alone to reflect on my work, read and gather information was tremendously useful. I almost thrived in the alone time. I also worried a ton- about friends, family and students. The political climate on top of the pandemic has caused many of us, including me, a certain level of anxiety and I believe that anxiety naturally became part of the work. My work is becoming more political because of the pandemic. As I am just starting a new series of works, I am thinking about the chemistry of particles in the air and breathing. I am uncertain how I am going to represent my response to the pandemic, I certainly think the act of breathing will be a topic of some new work. I have always been fascinated by how things spread, and how things can take over- from a virus to moss.
