Artist Statement: "In This Together" shows for me the dynamics of going through pandemic: hearts on the front side in a tight circle are about people united together, unifying their resources to survive and support each other through these tough times; flip side is of course how those hearts melt or wear out, with a drop of this unified synergy melting away from these united hearts. I found myself grateful of my closest people supporting me and being there for me during the lockdown, but at the same time I gradually felt how we're all are getting tired more and more and overwhelmed with what happens in the world. So "In this together" is about love and support of those close to us, but at the same time it's a reminder that there is always a flip side and we at times need to learn how to fill in our own resources before supporting others.
