Scrub, 2023
Acrylic on canvas
Scrub is a reflection on the early days of the pandemic. Crafted with a toothbrush rather than a conventional paintbrush, this work is infused with a deliberate choice, one that resonates with Jonah's compulsive cleaning rituals that consumed him during the spring and summer of 2020. Furthermore, the repetitive marks seen in this work are meant to remind the audience of the repetitive nature of life during March - May 2020.
