Eva Kahan Foundation Artist Residency, San Sano, Tuscany, Italy
I spent one month living isolated in a Tuscan villa, creating paintings and objects inspired by my closest environment and the great Italian masters’ artworks.
SIAC – International Artist Residency, Splitska, Croatia
I worked with water element this time, sort of an extension of my ‘Water and I’ project, I started earlier this year.
I became Ophelia in the waters of Splitska and I was reborn in colours again.
Title: Ophelia Remixed
Installation titled Observation, consisting of water samples taken from the sea at Splitska every morning and evening during the residency period, water used for cleaning my brushes after painting and found sea algae (washed to shore by the storm). The felt tip pen drawing was created close to the sea, examining the light’s reflection and what shapes it created on the water’s surface.
I also created another one of my sea collage videos. This time purely focusing on nothing else, but water.
These works were inspired by the natural elements of the island of Brac.
