To some, Covid-19 lockdown was a justified escape from the tiring extroverted society. This piece illustrates the reluctance of an introvert facing “back to normal” after the pandemic.

“I love listening to people’s stories. Small anecdotes, life-changing events, happy memories, tears, fears, laughter, secrets, regrets, repressed emotions... Narratives of people from all walks of life. I capture those stories in my drawing to look them closer for a little while, as eventually they all will be lost. Stories come and go. People die. That fact makes me see some uncertainty, helplessness or powerlessness in all those accounts and that is the mood I create in my work. It is not grief that I represent but acceptance and embrace of our fragility.”

- Misao Iwamoto
