good times hard times

I've been away for a while now, Istanbul feels very distant. I always find it difficult to start blogging again, when I haven't updated in a long time...

Good times: these past weeks I've been busy with an exhibition I'm having with my studiomates. I've been working on some leaf drawings, coffee-constellations and on finishing my "cells". We're a group of 6 persons, and the rooms aren't that big, so I won't be able to show it all, I'll have to chose what fits best with the rest.

Hard times: my father is really ill and he's in my thoughts daily. It's tough and frustrating, wanting to do something, knowing you can't stop time.
I think a lot about time. Mostly I wish there were more hours to the day so I could do all the things I want/need to do. I could draw my "cells" for hours - if only I had more time. It's like meditation. Being absolutely focused on drawing each circle. At the same time I let anything that comes into my head, pass through. Relaxation for the mind.


  1. Greetings Cecilia![Cili?]
    Enjoy your birthday in spite of everything.

  2. Hjärtliga gratulationer från Sigge och carro!

  3. Your drawings are brilliant! And yes - thinking about the time is hard.It passes so fast and we want to make so many things...
