This edition is part of an original series of limited edition silkscreen prints, entitled PRINT AID, created in response to the distress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. PRINT AID is a collaborative effort between silkscreen studio Pegasus Prints, art consultancy Sidel & McElwreath, and Exhibition A to provide creativity and assistance through the art community. Each edition supports an artist whose business has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, a portion of sales is donated to The Artist’s Fellowship, Inc, a non-profit organization that financially assists professional visual artists and their families in times of emergency, disability or bereavement.
ABOUT THE WORK
"What does love look like in the time of Covid-19? It looks like empathy. It looks like compassion. It looks like connection. "The Kiss" is an image rooted in longing. Our desire to be seen, to be touched, to be loved. We are reminded at this time of our humanity and what we share versus what sets us apart. "The Kiss" is an image of intimacy between two women, but ultimately it's an image of intimacy between two people." - Caris Reid
