A surrealist portrayal of quarantine’s trials and tribulations, Svetlana Bagdasaryan’s "Self Quarantine." captures the loneliness and mental torment of self-isolation. An experience foreign to most of us three years ago and now a ubiquitous misery, extreme isolation from people and the outside world has taken a heavy toll. While a decision necessary to protect your life and those of others, quarantine eats away at the soul. Long periods in solitude become increasingly unbearable as the lack of human company makes life feel hollow and meaningless.

Bagdasaryan touches on another aspect of self-isolation with the bare walls and absence of color or architectural detail in "Self Quarantine." No matter how much we love our homes, they begin to appear increasingly dull and repetitive the longer we remain stuck in them.

Even a gilded palace becomes a prison when the doors remain shut.
