I have never had such a long holiday in my life – it was wonderful.
But I’m itching to get back to things. To be involved in regularly making work and reflecting allows for connecting with ones self and an extended break from this very personal experience feels unsettling.
But hey – I’m back – complete with a bit of extra weight, interesting tan lines, numerous insect bites and many many fun and funny times to look back on!
I had several encounters with thought provoking objects whilst in Holland and Germany which very much link to my work with objects. In Ibiza I was fortunate to visit the beautiful gallery of the late Greman artist Eduard Micus (the gallery is run by his daughter) – his monotone, textural paintings are incredibly expressive and have fired my desire to get back into the studio and play with paint and canvas.
