The Persistence of Love ( In A Time of Disaster ) is an exhibition of ink paintings and installation featuring expressive images of roses which bear witness to the often unacknowledged presence of love, hope and courage during times of difficulty and darkness. Narratives about success through victory have become inadequate in the face of a world shut down by pandemic. The emergence of marginalized voices from history and our own time allow us to access stories of resilience and resistance. These stories are honoured by persistent images of roses that endure many layers of ink and speak for a universal, compassionate approach to the experience of loss and trauma.
