Even while being a true minimalist and mainly painting with black and white, I do not see the world as simple. There are variations of truth beneath that we cannot comprehend observing from a distance. The interspace and perspective make all the difference as the surface is usually deceptive.

Stand by Transformations

Exhibition at Azimut Berlin Gallery (still waiting to be opened)

I feel my dreams are losing colours. The spring arrived,
but the days are not gaining any colours.
For a long time now, the weekends have been blurred into weekdays. Like dull endless Mondays, accompanied by
pigments of grey that shadow the sky.

It is mentally tiresome to keep waiting for the change.
Feeling frightened that the change will appear in some other form than we are hoping.
And it will.
Transformation and upheaval are inevitable. The survival maps that we draw in our heads are not valid due to poor imagination.

There's no more space for colours,
no space for dreams.

I'm doing ok.

But where does this anger come from? And why?

We adapt to the situation, but we all feel insecure.

I have a different view from my friends and my loved ones. That saddens me.

Being abroad lets you see the situation from a different angle. I also know by now when the battle is doomed even before it could begin. But it's a delicate matter.

To broaden the view, one has to listen.

To understand, one has to hear with heart. My truth is not more valid than yours. Don't let it divide us apart.

It is not worth it.

We are a family of four and get along well. But sometimes it is still hard. I'm constantly thinking how difficult this might be for the families where things are not well. Especially I worry and feel sorry for their kids.

Children feel our fear, but as their sense of time is entirely different from adults, they feel the current situation is everlasting. The vision of a brighter future is torn from their horizon.

No room for love,
no room for peace,
no room for colours,
no room for dreams,
but plenty of room
for lonesomeness
and agony.
