The artist Aideen Barry created this series of digital drawings in the context of the current pandemic. Working from home, the artist gave expression to the sense of dislocation and mental shift that continues to permeate our new reality. As the artist noted in an essay on the work, “Monocopsis, the persistent feeling of being out of place in the world, is a constant in my state of being. I am always questioning why I feel at odds with the way things are, with the way that reality lies.” She goes on to note that the “drawings act as a kind of antidepressant intended to be bleak and funny in the same instant.”
