Through the combination of painting and sculpture, ‘Rooftops’ sheds light on the current existential context of Malta, informed by the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. It probes into the idea of isolation and individual confinement within an environment that is inundated by the perpetual state of the construction industry. An environment that is in a state of rapid transition in which open green spaces are being heedlessly engulfed. Spaces that are proven to elevate mood, ease out anxieties and help curb depressive disorders which are currently at an all-time high due to the current situation. This work reflects on the social and cultural aspects related to the overdevelopment and aggressive appropriation of space in the Maltese islands.
