It is interesting to observe a summer night through my studio window. The color of the sky and landscape turns from bright sunset shades to darker shades. Only a few dark moments until the soft morning light begins to appear accompanied by haze. At night my thoughts wander. Hours fly by and suddenly a new morning dawns. My thoughts wander to the previous day’s events and occasionally to my trips to different parts of the world. Memories and summer night moments are intertwined forming emotions and mental images.

For me the works included in the exhibition are a kind of a return to the beginning, to when I became interested in monotyping. My aim was to create an entirely different exhibition, but the boundaries I had set began to cause distress and made me question my work. I thus returned to the beginning and reminded myself why I originally became interested in monotyping. Freedom! I returned to the landscapes where only the horizon forms the interface guiding the image.
