There remains a need to share some reflections in writing. Only images of the works I create doesn’t seem to be enough to fully capture everything I would love to express. So I use this space again to write down what comes to my mind.
I will also share again some fragments of my creative work process. This year with Corona lock down I have spend quite some time painting and drawing. There is not yet a clear central theme. It is all a kind of improvisation, jumping into the unknown, following patterns, traces of a kind of energy, fine movements, lines, colour combinations, weaving together guiding me towards a moment that they suddenly connect together into something bigger and then there comes a pause or an end. Some paintings keep evolving over years. I will show some in a next post.
There have been several months that the words didn’t come easily. The coherence got lost. It was a time of letting go. It still is I think.
Everything wants to become more and more simple.
At first I thought it was a kind of personal mini crisis, but now I think it is not a that personal. Most emotions and thoughts don’t seem to be that personal. sooner or later somebody else feels and or thinks just the same though circumstances can be quite different.
Besides painting and drawing I did spend quite some time on taking care of plants and gathering them around me tough I do not yet have a garden. Plants, trees and birds are very much inspiring me at the moment. Being with them is a tremendous joy.
