    Abstract:
    In the Insomnia in Venice paintings, the waters are silently flooding the lamp-lit calli and canals, making damp patterns on the ancient walls. Twelve images of Acqua Alta and Plague Doctor masks point to climate change and to the current insidious health threats we face with the current Covid 19 pandemic. As the waters continue to rise and everyone is covering their faces again with a protective mask, who is sleeping?
    Notes:
    Contains twelve original paintings in the Insomnia in Venice series by June Julian
