Fear and Hoarding in Ink

Completed on:  April 16th 2020

Made with:

Black sumi brush ink on bristol paper


In march of 2020, the initial lockdowns were starting in the US and there was a massive surge of fear spreading across the globe. Walking through stores in the early days of the pandemic was unsettling. The aisles of cleaning supplies, cold medicine, canned food and toilet paper were stripped clean. Uncertainty of the virus mixed with mistrust in the country’s leadership led to waves of fear and hoarding. This painting was inspired by Banksy’s “Rage, the Flower Thrower”.
