During the Pandemic: finding distraction, solace and direction

I have finished a painting, In Suspension- March-April 2020, that began six weeks ago, on March 16th, when I set off for a day of painting in wilderness isolation. I had just made the stressful decision to cancel my upcoming solo show in New York City due to impending closures in response to the COVID-19 crisis. That day I should have been packing paintings for the show, but instead I headed for a waterfall within an easy drive, seeking distraction and solace.

I brought canvases and sketch pads of several sizes and proportions, not knowing what would inspire me. I was curious to see how much water was flowing with the spring runoff. What struck me first had little to do with the lively flow. A very long tree trunk bridged the stream at a height that suggested it had been carried there in a flash flood before getting wedged in tightly, perpendicular to the flow. I realized fairly quickly that I would build the composition around that pale linear form. Something about the stranded trunk resonated with my own sense of time suspended by COVID-19. There were reverberations of both sudden catastrophe and the regular flow of natural forces. If the water were to suddenly return to the tree’s level, I would have been under water.

Since the pandemic has cancelled exhibitions and the economic collapse has reduced art sales, I have been increasing my web presence through postings and making my own videos about my work

The complete documentation of the painting process includes many more photos of both the motif and the stages of the work as well as videos of me at work. I am developing them into several video segments which can be seen on Vimeo at   https://vimeo.com/user109783554

Here is one of them

All in a Day's Work -   Exhibition Images

Working process

 

 The exhibition, Anne Diggory: All in a Day’s Work, features sixteen lakeside landscapes, the products of Diggory’s intense concentration on a motif that often yields several works from a single day on location. Rather than choosing just one expression of shifting light and constantly changing patterns of waves and clouds, she creates multiple versions on the spot and later in her Saratoga Springs studio. Six works will focus on a day at Crane Point on Blue Mountain Lake and four on a day on Recluse Island on Lake George. The different artistic choices of medium, palette, amount of detail, and composition are both intuitive and deliberate as each artwork separately expresses the transitory quality of her experience.
