Creation Date

Spring 2020


Painting done for ART 460, taught by Professor James Linehan in Spring 2020. These works were created by University of Maine student Cheryl Coffin at home after the University of Maine ceased its on-campus classes and transitioned to online classes for the remainder of the spring semester. The works are water based mixed media, including watercolor, collage and black ink, on a variety of papers, including traditional watercolor paper, rice paper, and a map from an old atlas of the world. Coffin stated that the "image of coronavirus has captivated me, despite its potential lethality, ever since I saw the first electron micrographs and published models of the virus, so I decided to confront the subject directly and go where my visual and cognitive imagination led."
