Road trip is my first series that I have "planned" to paint. Three canvases representing a panoramic view are united by circles.
This year I had a chance to enroll a mindfulness class given by our lab manager Silke and in one of the exercises we were raising our arms, uniting them together on top of our heads just like drawing a circle. It was also like gathering energy from the universe and being united with it. After that class, I started to paint circles. And the feeling I felt was so peaceful afterwards.
I painted six of them, one day hopefully they will find their homes.
In these paintings, I tried different mediums, oil sticks, gesso and texture.
Painting three canvases together gives me such a beautiful feeling and energy. I also used paint dripping, similar to “gravity” paintings, but more intensely, especially on the farm or land parts of the paintings.
