Meridith McNeal

Magical Things from Quarantine Salads and Goat Cheese, 2020

Watercolor on paper

12 x 12"

Value: $1200

Magical Things, my ongoing series of watercolors, venerate the easily overlooked objects of everyday life: paperback novels, a thermos, a pencil sharpener. Mundane objects become totems, Milagros-charms of mindfulness, imbued with a power greater than the sum of their parts. Several weeks ago, after NYC implemented mandatory stay-at-home, I began a trajectory of this work: Magical Things From Quarantine. Included in this series are portraits of objects that are most meaningful to me during this strange and disorienting time.

*This piece will be available for fair market value.
