Wind People

We were staying at the house of many winds. It sounded like being inside of the deserted trumpet. The wind people come and go through our windows - bowing, murmuring, rushing out from the opposite end of the room. Other times they argue and slam the shutters, sometimes their visit is gentle - they apologize in whispers, leaving only curtains gently dancing. {September, 2019}

A fashionable lady was sitting by the gate at JFK International Terminal. For hours she has been looking at the screen of her phone, having put her skinny high-heeled legs on top of the carry-on luggage, which twitched and shivered as if it was freezing. A crew member has announced the boarding of the very first class passengers, when the luggage of the fashionable lady opened a little hole in its zipper. A chunky finger stuck out of it and, like an icebreaker ship in the Arctic, went through the zipper around the luggage, turning a little hole into a gaping void in the mouth of the lady’s carry-on. A chunky, fashionable gentleman with crickets for a mustache carefully stepped out of it. The fashionable lady peacefully laid down on the floor, he took her by her hair (I believe it was a well-attached wig) and dragged her gracefully across the floor to boarding. (September, 2019)

Under my sleeping tree there is a road - it does not have a beginning or end. Under my sleeping tree there is a carnivore, a storyteller and a joker - they live in the branches, but every night they come out to play. One candle for the tired, one for the brave and a million candles for the lovers… (October, 2019)

Pins & Petals

Hello!

Last weekend we visited Long Island, NY for the opening of my solo exhibition “Pins & Petals” with Haven Gallery.

Summer has graced us with a beautiful sunny day and many creatures came to see the body of my last year’s work, which fills my heart with sincere gratitude. If you haven’t got a chance to be present at the opening – the exhibition is going to be on view until August, 25th.

An airplane nightbook log done on my way back home:

“Bark! A little bit louder than the floor’s creak. Write down a short concentrate of conclusions and preserve it under a cast iron lid. The trees scratch the ceiling of the light-polluted sky. Petals are just debris of the dreams gone by…” (-july, 2019)

This drawing “Gorgon in C Minor” is going to Abend Gallery, Denver, CO to be a part of the “Animalia” exhibition.

The most heartfelt thanks to Jeremy Mann, whose creativity and artistic spirit is always the biggest inspiration.

See you on either side of the world. Let your inner creatures be kind!

Warmest,
