City Series – Suraiya Hasan in Paris, We the Isolationists (200th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Suraiya Hasan]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see myself delved in a delirium exhausted by the electronic sadness. Colors float in my mind! A longstanding deep desire to start painting again, I find myself in my atelier in front of a huge empty canvas. Away from ‘the echo trap’!! In real life, earlier, I had taken my sewing machine to make some face masks. My mind was brimming with new ideas to make unusual, unique masks for myself and regular ones for my husband! As day breaks, in my adoptive city, every thing goes! Back to my empty canvas I guess I shall make something surreal..!! All what we are living and surrounded by is actually Surreal.
