Oil on canvas.


The 3rd piece in the Isolation series, looks at our senior population. They have been the most vulnerable during the pandemic. Have had to bear this alone without loved ones at hand and a staggering number have fallen prey to this virus. Mazarine, a Toronto based artist has taken this opportunity to showcase the depth of unsanitary conditions in the long term care facilities which had added to the death toll of the senior population.
Cut flowers signifies that whilst the term of life for our elders is finite, they still need a full vase of water, they still need the sunshine and care that a potted plant would. They can remain and fresh and bloom with love till they wither and its our duty to make sure they are taken care of.
Here Mazarine shows the fragility of an elder embedded in florals. Her palette here has some earth tones, this is to signify the 'ashes to ashes, dust to dust' of a life lived till the end.
