Biology of technological advancement. Pandemic is a global event. For the first time in history, we have the ability to communicate with each other in real time and respond instantly. I think it has given rise to some new global identity on a personal level - a sort of global brotherhood. This crisis has heightened interest in genetic engineering and computational biology. And, of course, artificial intelligence. Remote work, online shopping and education, revised entertainment format. This is just the beginning of a progressive push that's leapt 50 years ahead in a matter of weeks. Boiling, blazing, Evolutionary World Broth. But despite all the technological acceleration, I was scared during this period. So many deaths around. Uncertainty and endless anxiety for tomorrow. This painting of "The Epidemic" was started in my self-isolation. And it reflects my feelings and impressions of a new, disturbing reality. It's a mash of emotions intertwined with fear and a bubbling human nature. It's all literally spilled out on canvas.
