“I wrote “Shut In” to show people’s desire to leave their homes while forced to remain at home.

The proportion of the black background to the white shows how we view our own houses compared to the outside world where people want to go.

Man is represented on the left and COVID-19 on the right. COVID-19 is shown spread out and the harsher edges pointing toward the man demonstrating what is keeping him away from his desired place.”
