In late January I had the oportunity to return to the Centre for Ceramics in Berlin to round up my work there. My residency will end on March 6. In conjunction with this project I was also able to visit Palma, Mallorca and the studios of Joan Miró. A real treat! I was surpriced to find his simpler and more minimalistic paintings very atractive. Perhaps my scandinavian heritage that kicked in?
In Berlin I have been working on many small projects and have found much new inspiration to maybe or maybe not, continue working on back home in my own studio. Regardless, the time in residence have given me many leeds and eureka moments about my work as an artist. Why I am drawn to specific themes and expressions or what is important to me as an artist. Time will tell how these things will play out.
