FRENZY: "a state or period of uncontrolled excitement or wild behavior"
I've been seeing the word "frenzy" quite a bit in the news. Although it's used in different contexts, the common denominator is usually the pandemic. Some examples:
"The coronavirus pandemic has made purchasing a home more challenging as a limited inventory of homes for sale fuels a dizzying buying frenzy." - Baltimore Sun
"At the start of the year, infectious disease experts across California were, in their own words, stumbling around in a blind frenzy." - San Francisco Chronicle
"Once crippled by the pandemic, airlines are anticipating a summer travel frenzy." - New York Times
A frenzy can be seen as good or bad, but it always involves excitement. That is what is at the heart of my latest artwork series, "Frenzy".
We've all been through some very challenging times over the last 16 months with a "frenzy" of events that affected each of us in a number of ways. There have been times when the news made me feel sad, confused or angry, but other times I felt happy and inspired. Feeling my own internal frenzy, I decided to express it by creating this collection to show that we can get beauty out of chaos. It is my way of promoting positive energy, and I am happy to be able to share it with you.
Stay tuned for my "Frenzy" designs to appear on new products soon.
