If there’s one truth we’ve been reminded of this past year, it’s that humans need other humans.

Our spirits reside with the people we love. For so many of us, separated by either distance or circumstance, we live for the promise of a warm embrace, an outstretched hand, a kiss.

In French, there’s a word to describe the overwhelming sense of joy felt upon being reunited with the one you love after a long separation – Retrouvailles.

Retrouvailles are a celebration of that moment.

These two pieces depict the moment before and after that moment.
