Jay Samit

Created March 28, 2020

Day 18 - Missing the outside world. Remembering the simple joy of watching the crowds in Time Square, having a soft pretzel, and seeing a Broadway musical.

From exhibition America Disrupted, featuring a series of watercolors painted during the Covid-19 quarantine. At once a record of the artist’s emotional response to our current era, it is also a time Jay Samit found himself conflicted about his nation’s history. Part therapeutic, part social commentary, Samit’s palette reveals the fissures in American society further exposed by this unsettling period.
