Within Bounds

Quarantine, like many, challenged our Collision Project artist, Amrita Marino, in a way she had not anticipated. The Indian-born, Brooklyn-based artist’s signature look often features bold colors to express feelings of joy and celebration for all that life has to offer. For this piece, she visualized three phases of her emotional experience. On the left, optimism and belief that this too shall pass. In the middle, pushing with anger against these burdensome restrictions. In the end, an appreciation for the signs of the changing seasons outside the window of her ground floor apartment. The colored geometric planes represent the transitions from one room to another and were influenced by female textile artists of the Bauhaus. This piece, while visually engaging, creates a space to understand and process the past many months of our collective lives.
